“It is coming. It is a certainty… more than ten-thousand will die,” says Fox News anchor Shepard Smith
PACIFIC NORTHWEST (INTELLIHUB) — “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast,” a FEMA official told Kathryn Schulz of the New Yorker, raising the eyebrows of those who are in-the-know.
“When the next full-margin rupture happens, that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America.”, Schulz wrote about an anticipated future mega-quake.
To boot, Fox news anchor Shepard Smith warns: “The worst natural disaster in the history of America is coming… if I lived right now in the Pacific Northwest I would be considering moving — seriously… a colossal earthquake and… tsunami” will likely strike the Pacific Northwest in the not too distant future.
“They [scientists] are all in agreement, it is absolutely coming,” Smith explained, “… a wall of water … up to a hundred feet high and up to seven-hundred feet across.
“Houses… dump-trucks… schools” will be washed away, “thousands and thousands will not escape,” he said. “Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, and Olympia, Salem and Eugene wiped out. Altogether about 7 million people and that’s not including tourists… These massive 9.2 earthquakes… happen at regular intervals… on average, according to scientists, about every 240 years.”
The segment based on the write-up in the New Yorker also featured top astrophysicist Michio Kaku who explained how the Cascadia Fault has already yielded evidence which shows how “we could be long overdue for another big one.”
“In the inundation zone, we have 70,000 that have almost no clue as to what could happen.”, Kaku explained.
The massive tsunami would likely trail the earthquake by about fifteen minutes leaving no time for people to flee to safe areas.
Additionally, the astrophysicist offered some advice. “I would think twice” about living in the Pacific Northwest,” he warned. “In the lifetime of some of our viewers, they may see Seattle and Portland destroyed.
