Almost exactly two years after the Japan mega-quake and tsunami, Oregon lawmakers heard the grim news:
It’s only a matter of time before the next mega-quake and tsunami happen off the coast of Oregon, Washington and Northern California. And the damage and devastation–and loss of life–will be like anything we Oregonians and Washingtonians have seen in our lifetime.
You ask is I ever lose sleep at night over anything weather or science related? This is the event I worry about most.
The image in this post–is a Japan tsunami energy map. The most intense outgoing wave energy is the purple, racing away from Japan. Someday the map will look much different. The energy will be racing both toward and away from our coastline. With the purple — the most intense wave energy — centered off the coast of Washington, Oregon and Northern California.
