Is this the year for the big one?

According to seismologists, the entire Pacific coastal area of North America is at risk, because of the instability posed by the Pacific plate subducting the North American plate all along the Pacific coast. But, as you have mentioned, the Cascadia Subduction Zone is particularly vulnerable, it seems. It is part of the remnant of the huge Farallon Plate that has apparently already subducted under the North American plate. One of the concerns is that the failure of the Cascadia fault could set off a much larger quake up and down the entire coastal area. Such may be the case in the lead up to the Lord's return in judgment.
There is also the very real possiblity that the 9.0 plus mega earthquake might trigger one of the many active volcanoes in Washington or Oregon.

Yes. Geologists used to think that Mt. Rainier, near Seattle, was "extinct" but are now worried that it might have a Mt. Saint Helen's type of eruption in the future. There are rumblings in the area that suggest that it is "waking up". It is the highest peak in the Cascade Range and is now considered to be the most dangerous volcano in the U.S. by the USGS. It is thought that Tacoma (the city nearest to Mt. Rainier) would be obliterated by a massive lahar (a wall of mud that flows at blinding speed down the side of a steep, snow-capped volcano like Mt. Rainier). https://www.usgs.gov/volcanoes/mount-rainier/future-eruptions-mount-rainier

Contrary to popular thought, lava eruptions are much less dangerous than lahars. Lahars travel much further and much faster than lava flows. It is like a very fast moving wall of concrete that flattens everything in its path.

I have watched several video presentations on the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and its very alarming knowing the destruction it will cause.

I ordered and received 3 books today on the triology of Cascadia Fallen by Austin Chambers. The books are fiction, but based on a possible scenario in the aftermath of such destruction. Im not sure why, but books or movies on massive destruction have always fascinated me.

Me too. A display of God's power is always fascinating to contemplate.

Ok, still watching video presentations on Cascadia Subduction Zone, trips to the coast are no longer for me…. :oops:

I cant even imagine what it would be like on the coast. First, you have a 4-5 minute long major shaking from a 9.0 plus earthquake, then depending on which part of the coast you live on, 15-20 mins is all you have to get to high ground before the Tsunami strikes.

We live 60 miles inland, and the subduction zone is approx 70-100 miles offshore, so the quake would be horrible for my city, but in most cases, survivable, with no threat of ocean water reaching us.

Water and electrical power would probably be out for a minimum of 2-4 weeks where we live, and much, much longer on the coast for the cities that survive.

If this event happens soon, it will be a sneak preview of what life would be like during the time of Judgements, and perhaps lead many to Jesus before the rapture.

Pretty much the same up in Vancouver BC, with our provincial capitol in Victoria being wiped out completely with a Tsunami. Our province's main financial, political and medical leadership are all in that zone. Our electrical grid could continue ok but emergency response services would be lost for a while including our politicians and others who normally make decisions in emergencies. Those of us in the interior who know how to survive will likely do so, but the woke crowd in the big city of Vancouver and surrounding areas, plus the entire environmental movement that likes to hang out on Vancouver Island will be silenced.

Not sure how that might leave the average left behind BC resident in the Interior, but it would certainly shift the politics sharp right.

I sometimes wonder if the leftists will have a mass extinction event, and the globalists will unite with the right wing unbelieving element to create the New World Order after we are gone. Since buying and selling are part of the Mark and those activities are not big on the socialist lefty lunatic side.

Interesting. Since I believe that the New World Order is already shaping up to be a fascist world order, what you are saying makes sense. Mussolini's shorthand definition of fascism was, "the marriage of the State to corporate power" it would make sense that the NWO would be fascist in its political structure. It is inconceivable that the mega-wealthy elites controlling the NWO, would be willing to hand over their wealth (and thus power) to communists. Are the "liberals" in government ever serious about breaking up monopolies and corporate monopoly power? Hardly.

There are few differences between the tactics of the "extreme right" and the "extreme left". The leftists are too politically gullible to see how they are being played. Their problem is that they believe what the mega-wealthy globalist elites say, rather than understanding what they do.
