    DescriptionThis book is the story of the powerful earth forces at work in the western and off-shore areas of Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia, with special emphasis on earthquakes and tsunamis and how they threaten the people who live in these areas. It offers timely and important information for these people and for anyone interested in the interplay between the forces of nature and cities. It provides information on why there are earthquakes and why they are common on the west coast of North America. It describes the giant earthquakes that will likely occur off the coast and the tsunamis that they may trigger. It also describes the destructive earthquakes that could take place on faults close to Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, and Victoria. It provides information on the many effects of earthquakes, including ground shaking, landslides, and liquefaction, and societal and individual measures that can be taken to reduce the damage and loss of life from earthquakes and tsunamis.
