“Great” and “Catastrophic” Earthquakes affecting the Puget Sound Region

Introduced by: Chris Boland

A great earthquake occurs when a large segment of the Cascadia Subduction Zone breaks. Strong, long period shaking occurs over a very large area and a large tsunami strikes coastal regions. A catastrophic earthquake collapses buildings and infrastructure leading to enormous economic impact and loss of life. In the Seattle area this will most likely be due to a shallow earthquake close to the metro-center.

When were the last events of each kind and when can we expect them again?
