APEGBC Sea-to-Sky Branch AGM, Vice President's Address and Technical Presentation on "Magnitude 9 - Possible Impacts of the Next Giant Earthquake off the BC Coast".

Once every 500 to 600 years on average - and most recently, in January 1700 - a magnitude 9 earthquake occurs when the west edge of North America moves westward over the oceanic crust beneath the ocean floor west of Vancouver Island, Washington and Oregon. The next such 'mega-quake' will produce strong ground motions of particular concerns for Victoria, Vancouver and cities in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.  Dr. Clague will describe the likely effects of this earthquake and the scientific attempts to forecast when it will happen.
