We are earthquake experts. Ask us anything about The Really Big One coming for the Pacific Northwest.
Hello, Reddit! Did you spend a sleepless night after reading the New Yorker piece about the earthquake that’s going to eat Seattle? Then we are here to help.
- John Vidale, director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network
- Debbie Goetz of Seattle’s Emergency Management Office
- Sandi Doughton, science writer at The Seattle Times and author of Full Rip 9.0: The Next Big Earthquake in the Pacific Northwest
Ask Us Anything.
Here’s a link to some of The Seattle Times’ seismic coverage and an excerpt from the book, plus an editor's note that can help serve as proof.
EDIT: Thanks so much for all the great questions! We've got to get going for now, but we'll circle back later today to answer some things we couldn't get to in these 90 minutes. Stay safe, and remember to duck, cover and hold on!
