So you guys actually have seismic codes?
From looking at bridges in the Portland area, you'd think they were in Nebraska... that place is going to fall into a pile when the subduction zone lets go.
But the area that I'm worried about is the midwest.
When the New Madrid fault goes again, it's going to be widespread because there's no underground features to mitigate the extent of the shaking.
Looking at "did you feel it" charts, the shaking intensities reported in the midwest are far higher than those of comparable quakes out here.... quakes that we don't even feel show a near panic response in the midwest.
And none of the construction or infrastructure in that area is designed for it.
