 Dangerous fault line poses a threat that only increases with time

Crescent City was forever changed when 29 city blocks were wiped from the map during the 1964 tsunami, and the consensus among scientists is that it will happen again — only worse.

The Cascadia Subduction Zone, a 700-mile fault line that lies offshore of the Pacific Northwest Coast from Cape Mendocino to Vancouver Island has produced massive earthquakes that spawn monster tsunamis on a regular basis for the past 10,000 years.

The southern end of the Cascadia fault, including the section hugging Crescent City’s coast, has seen more earthquakes than the northern end, and researchers from Oregon State University say there is a 40 percent chance of a mega-quake in the next 50 years.

The Great Alaska Earthquake: Where it all started, Anniversary in Alaska

 As Del Norters get ready to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1964 tsunami, Alaska is gearing up to remember the massive earthquake that spawned the tidal waves. The magnitude 9.2 Great Alaska Earthquake wreaked havoc on the new state on March 27, 1964, Good Friday. The quake generated landslides that destroyed homes and businesses in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city.  

Landslides also did damage in communities around Prince William Sound at the quake’s epicenter. In his book, “The Raging Sea,” Dennis M. Powers writes that much of Valdez, 55 miles away from the epicenter, slid into the sea, while landslides destroyed waterfronts at Seward and Whittier.

“Due to the numerous passages, inlets and islands in the Prince William Sound, the main tidal wave caused devastation and deaths in Alaska before speeding south to the U.S. West Coast,” he wrote.
