Major Earthquake Could Hit West Coast at Any Time Experts Say

Brown pelicans fly in front of the San Francisco skyline Aug 17, 2018.

Luke 21:11 “There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.”

Important Takeaways:

  • ‘It could happen tomorrow’: Experts know disaster upon disaster looms for West Coast
  • Scientists say a massive quake could strike the San Francisco Bay Area at any moment. And when it does, the city can expect to be slammed with a force equal to hundreds of atomic bombs.
  • Porter said the shaking will quickly cut off power in many areas. That means unsuspecting people will be trapped between floors in elevators without backup power. At peak commute times, the number of those trapped could be in the thousands.
  • Running water will be in short supply. Cellphone service may not work at all. The aftershocks will keep coming.
  • Rescuers won’t come – at least not right away. Firefighters will be battling infernos that could outnumber the region’s fire engines.
  • The disaster remains theoretical for now. But the United States Geological Survey estimates a 51% chance that a quake as big as the one described in HayWired will occur in the region within three decades.
  • Whether the next disaster to strike the West Coast is a flood, an earthquake or something else, scenario experts warn that the impacts will reverberate for years or longer.
