Full-Rip 9.0: The Next Big Earthquake in the Pacific Northwest, by Sandi Doughton

"Scientists predict that it's only a matter of time before the biggest earthquake in North America - a full-rip 9.0 - will occur in the Pacific Northwest. The Cascadia Subduction Zone fault line lies of the West Coast and has been setting of megaquakes with regularity for the past 10,000 years. When this fault rupture, releasing geologic tension that has been building up for centuries, the Big One will occur.

This book captures the fascinating store of the scientists who are dedicated to deciphering the earth's most deeply held secrets - and the emergency planners who much prepare for the worst. This is a must-read book for anyone who calls the Pacific Northwest home."
