Bulletin Of Seismological Society Of America Warns: Fault Near Portland, Oregon Could Unleash Tom Horn And Steve Quayle’s “Cascadia Is The Big One” And Wormwood Visions With Devastating Swarm Earthquake Activity

A fault near Portland, Oregon, has the capacity of producing an earthquake of up to magnitude 7.1 to 7.4, which would create very strong shaking and damage property and potentially threaten lives in the Portland metro region. Portland is in the Cascadia subduction zone, the region of the Pacific Northwest where the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate is diving beneath the North American plate. This subduction of the plates gives rise to earthquakes and volcanic activity. Gales Creek is considered a forearc fault, which means it is located in the region between the spot where the plates meet and the volcanic chain link to the subduction zone. It runs 45 miles (73 km) in a  northwesterly direction in a lush, forested area of the Coast Range mountains north of the Willamette River. The vegetation makes it difficult to see evidence of past earthquakes on the fault, such as the cliff-like scarps that form when Earth’s crust breaks… (READ MORE)
