Scenario for a Magnitude 6.7 Earthquake on the Seattle Fault


Washington State logoIn the Puget Sound region of Washington, a planning group of engineers, earth scientists, and goverment officials described the nature and risk of a large earthquake on the Seattle Fault. Projections of damage and losses in the area raised public awareness and stimulated mitigation and response planning among the region’s government agencies, private organizations, and businesses.
This document serves as a planning and advocacy model for other other regions facing an earthquake risk. (2005, 39MB pdf)
