Major malfunction in posting this, the end came out like a 1000 car pile up.
Well if we only change our policy towards Israel it will never happen...
Or say too many here on FR...
I don't understand how people in Oregon could think there aren't major faults nearby. That ring of fire thing passes right on through...
The article is a bit panicky. As the writer puts it, the worst cast scenario is what will definetly happen. With the epicenter being probably 100 miles off the coast, when the big one comes the worst will probably not happen.
Of course, even if the worst case does not happen, the coast will still probably be devastated. I can see where all of the magnificent old bridges on Hwy 101 could come down, and then the only routes into the coastal towns would be from far inland.
Most Oregon coastal towns are not all that vulnerable to tsunamis. There is low-lying ground, but not that much, and high ground is mostly nearby. The biggest dangers from tsunamis, I think, are in the inland estuaries and bays. Waldport, Newport, Reedsport, Coos Bay and inland from Florence come to mind.
Sorry - I don't trust anybody named Goldfinger, whether he claims to be a scientist or not.
Besides, everyone knows that if there's an earthquake, it's going to be Bush's fault.
**Oregon, unfortunately, has many weak links, earthquake experts and officials say**
Not the least of which is Kulongoski and the dimocrats.
The sky is falling! The sky is falling!
No need to worry!
Ah this is merely Katrina envy.. $$billions$$ for the gulf coast but none for Oregon.. Liberalism is all about envy..
Why is it that every time I hear one of these disaster predictions, rather than being concerned over human suffering, I instead immediately begin calculating whether it means a bunch of liberals will die?
Do I have an "Anger Management Problem"... 'r'sumthin?
