Theoretically, there is a 33% chance of a massive (9+ Richter) seismic event happening at any time.

This would be catastrophic to the Oregon Coast line. Currently, if the Cascadia fault slips, we will see an immediate land shift 11 feet to the SW.

We typically have a large scale seismic event every 200-500 years in the northwest. This has been confirmed through sediment records. We are currently 316 years into that cycle.

If you live east of the coastal range, you will be fine. No land separation possible from this event. If you live on the coast, you will want to move inland, as the tsunami generated by this event will wipe the coast line clean.

I am a geology student who is studying these exact things for my career. Somehow it has blown itself out of proportion. Yes, people will die, but getting your house stocked with food and supplies will help you quite a bit.

You know people have been predicting these major earthquakes on the west coast for a long time now.

Depends on how close you are to the Columbia, and what part of the city you are in.

If you are close to the Columbia, expect flooding as the tsunami will travel up the Columbia and flood it's tributaries. If you are in an urban environment, expect power to be out for up to 3 years. It may be quicker than that, but most of our infrastructure will be heavily damaged.

I would recommend moving to Mid Valley. Honestly if it does go, a lot of us will be hurting regardless. I live in albany right now and even we would have a hard time due to bridge collapses and motorway damage.

I would begin heading east towards Sweethome area. There is a decent amount of game in that area for food, as well as numerous rivers and streams for water.

It's not an exact science and it is hard to predict. Mostly because we can't see how the subducting plate is reacting with our plate.

We do know that our coastline has been moving northeast for a while now. Currently we have had a shift of 11 feet northeast. Once the plate move past the hang up, all of that land will rebound in a matter of minutes.

It's been predicted quite a few times, and that's just due to the historical record laid in the sediment cores showing that a massive event triggers every 200-500 years. We are getting pretty dang close to the historical limits of when these events are supposed to take place.

It's better to prep food, water, ammo, and first aid supplies. It will be quite some time before we would be able to get help from the rest of the US.

Good luck on your move. Wherever you go, consider renting first to make sure you fit in and like it there. Next, don't tell anybody you are from Oregon. You'd be surprised at the pushback people get when moving from CA and other mega-liberal areas. Rumor has it that Oregon is a VERY liberal place. Tell your new neighbors you are from "down the road aways or some other non-specific BS."

33% chance of the big one at any time. Ok, did it happen now? No.

...How about now? No.

...How about now? Nope, still hasn't happened. ****...there goes the average!

My point is: that statement makes no sense. Is there risk of earth movement and tsunamis on the Oregon coast? Yes. There are other risks elsewhere. Running around trying to avoid natural disasters doesn't make sense, and there is much more to be worried about in Oregon than an earthquake in my opinion (though I am not living in Oregon at the moment, I have lived there for 38 years). That aside, survival and prepping is about just that...being prepared, not running away from what *might* happen. Think about how you can mitigate risks where you are. If you really want to move, think about the risks in the area you want to move to. Which one fits best with the resources you have?

Just my $0.02...

Be prepared for culture shock if entering the Ozark Plateau area from anywhere outside the rural South. After 8 years in this area I eagerly await the move out. There ARE worse places than than this hotbed of loud ill-educated buffoons. This is "good old boy" territory and the long-term residents are seemingly unaware that anything exists outside their narrow mental and geophysical boundaries.

Tennessee is very nice, I have visited there a few times and liked the area.
My kids left Texas and moved to Oregon because college made them liberals. I have visited Oregon its pretty but I dont feel comfortable there.
Good luck finding place to land

When I opened this topic I expected it to be about Oregon's economic troubles. They seem more imminent ��

Yes! Hillsboro and points east into the Cascade Range are in jeopardy! Dig in and read up.
