Cascadia Earthquake Anniversary, January 26

Today marks the 317th year since the Pacific Northwest experienced an estimated magnitude 9.0 megathrust earthquake in the Cascadia Subduction Zone. This earthquake also created a large tsunami that attacked the Pacific Northwest coast line and 10 hours later, the coast of Japan.
