FEMA predicts that 13,000+ people will die when the long overdue Cascadia fault line finally blows causing the worst California earthquake of all time – a 1 in 3 chance in the next 50 years.
According to scientists, people will need to “escape on foot” as the roads will all liquefy and thus travelling on them will be next to impossible.
Scientists also suggest that if you hear a dog barking, you need to “run”, as dogs will be reacting to compressional waves (that humans cannot hear) which indicates that people will have 20 minutes to escape to higher ground before they perish.
According to The New Yorker :
Most people in the United States know just one fault line by name: the San Andreas, which runs nearly the length of California and is perpetually rumored to be on the verge of unleashing “the big one.” That rumor is misleading, no matter what the San Andreas ever does. Every fault line has an upper limit to its potency, determined by its length and width, and by how far it can slip. For the San Andreas, one of the most extensively studied and best understood fault lines in the world, that upper limit is roughly an 8.2—a powerful earthquake, but, because the Richter scale is logarithmic, only six per cent as strong as the 2011 event in Japan.
