Oregonians Warned To Prepare For Big One Roads Cut Off For 5 years, no electricity for 3 months, no gas for 6 months

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

September 22, 2013OREGONSitting on a major fault line, Oregon is “like an eight-and-a-half-month pregnancy, due any time now” for a major earthquake, a geologist with the Oregon Office of Emergency Management told an overflow crowd Friday in Medford. “We’re in the zone, and we’d darn well better get ourselves ready for it,” said Althea Rizzo, geology hazard coordinator for OEM. “A lot of you may have moved here from California to escape them, but the fact is, Oregon is earthquake country.” About half the hands went up when Rizzo asked how many had been through a California earthquake. Rizzo said there’s a 37 percent chance the Big One will happen in the next 50 years. A major earthquake would cripple transportation on Interstate 5 as bridges and overpasses collapse from two to four minutes of ground shaking, possible very severe, with stressful aftershocks for weeks. “It’s going to shake here,” she said. “Single-family homes will bounce off their foundations. Landslides will cause transportation between I-5 and (Highway) 101 on the coast to be cut off for three to five years.” A big quake will cause liquefaction, in which the ground, if saturated with water, will “turn to pudding,” causing hardware, such as sewer systems, septic lines and gas tanks, to rise up out of the earth. Lines from Washington state gasoline refineries cross 15 rivers, leaving them vulnerable to quake tremors, she says. Most of these were built in the mid-20th century, with no thought to making them quake-resistant, she says, adding that they would be offline for at least six months. Electrical power would be down from one to three months until transformers and the electrical grid get going again, she says. 
A region’s markets have food enough for only three days, so families should store at least three weeks of nonperishable food — tuna, beans, freeze-dried items — and other vital commodities, such as toilet paper. Rizzo advocates planning on the household, regional and statewide levels before the inevitable quake emanates from the “big, bad, ugly” Cascadia Subduction Zone, which runs 600 miles from about Eureka, Calif., to the north end of Vancouver Island. The North American tectonic plate, on which the Rogue Valley rests, is moving southwesterly a couple of inches a year, overriding oceanic plates and building up tension. When the tension is released, she said, it causes far-reaching land quakes and lifts an enormous amount of sea water, which will slam the Oregon Coast with tsunamis. Partial quakes happen on an average of every 240 years. The last one was in 1700, so it’s been 213 years. Quakes of the entire length of the zone come every 500 to 600 years and governments should expect those to be 9.0 or more on the Richter scale — tremendously devastating. They cannot be predicted, Rizzo said. Another blow to Oregon would come if vital utilities and transportation were cut off for so long that major businesses left the state and took jobs and money with them. A dozen years ago, Oregon authorized $2 billion in bonds to bolster infrastructure in schools, community colleges and emergency services, but the recession, she said, took that off-track. Rizzo urged several hundred local residents to spread the word to family and friends to take first-aid and Community Emergency Response Team training, store supplies and get to know your neighbors and people who have training and tools. Communities must assess risks to buildings, roads, power, water and sewer lines, she said, adding that people should learn to “drop, cover and hold” and practice getting to safe places in their homes. Wall art should be screwed down, big furniture, water heater and bookcases secured, and heavy items kept close to the floor, not up high where they could fall on people. “You need to practice this over and over because when it’s happening you’re not going to be able to think,” she said. –Mail Tribune

      Cool, hope many Americans die and hope all Mexicans stay alive. Just a thought.

      • resonator

        Thanks for showing us the kind of mentality that is responsible for All War in all ways at all time.

      • Wretched Infidel

        Well, that is true. Mexican people don’t like to abort their own children like Americans think is cool.

        not enough beans to feed the hoards of you, food stamps going to stop, Obama phones will just get you in FEMA working for your beans and phones, Mexico will start to look good by the time THEY make an army of serf’s out of you. Good Luck Idiot!

        Why would you say that? Because you are a jewish troll?

      • Sakeeta2013

        If its any people that need to be eradicated, its Mexicans. They are smelly, stupid, and worthless. They dont do anything except get drunk and eat tacos. You’re probably just some stupid Mexican thats jealous cause Americans are way smarter than Mexicans.

        Plus we dont allow 12 year olds to be screwed legally.

      Man im getting so sick of hearing this gloom and doom crap all the time so there is a 30% chance of big earthquake in 50 years ya ya ya and i bet there is a 50% chance of rain next week.If i had a dollor for everytime somebody perdicts this kinda crap and nothing happens i could be a millionare by now.I do truley believe there will be a big change a comming but i only believe what the holy bible tells me i dont depend on man for anything… :razz: :razz: :razz:

        I’m with you Brother. I am sick and tired of hearing this stuff and waiting for something to happen. The world has been facing imminent disaster since 1999, and i’ve had enough of living in fear.

    • LavenderRose

      I love Oregon, LOVE that state, love the people all the rivers, mountains and ocean, now, I was thinking of moving to Boulder, then the major floods hit, then I was thinking of moving to Oregon, now this, maybe I should just stay were I am. Where’s is the perfect place to live, anyone know???

        I was born and raised in Medford and most of my family lives in the Rogue Valley. It is a beautiful place, but has very high unemployment. I thought the information was good, trying to get people aware and prepared. It may be more helpful when the SHTF, which will probably happen before the earthquake happens. Some of my family are awake, but not all. It is terrifying to think of what horrific lives our children and grandchildren will have to endure. All the children of the world.
        Our loving government does not even warn us about radiation fallout from Fukushima! With all the earthquake s and volcanic activity in Japan, it is a matter of time before a huge nuclear event will be too big to ignore. I do not know what will happen, scientifically, but it will destroy all of us. Maybe not immediately, but soon enough. Oh, and there is a nuclear reactor up in Washington that is going to be causing huge problems.

          Traveled and camped the ‘unequaled for natural beauty’, Oregon Coastal road hwy 1 many times over many years. The magnificent bridges, are the link that brought prosperity to the previously un-accessible (except by ship) coastal region. Condi McCullough was truly a Master Engineer. Oregon State is enjoyable in it’s radical differences between east and coastal west.

          The ‘fact’ that the strings of ‘Haystacks’ were once a part of the mainland mass, is testament to the never ending movement of tectonic plates. Tectonic plates are a rare moving crust on a planet. One other bit of evidence that the earth is unique in its design. The coastal range is comprised of a lava flow from an unimaginable distance east. A faith in the One True God through his Son, who came to earth to personally deliver the message of Salvation, is comfort unknown to most fatalist secular humanity. Once that Faith is accepted and instilled, a ‘peace of mind’ previously unknown, becomes a way of life. Enjoy all of nature’s provided ambiance, as a dweller in paradise on earth. Nothing will occur that is not ordained, or that you will not be able to tolerate. Absolutely Nothing.

        Go ahead and move to Oregon, but don’t stay too close to the coast. The prediction above deals with coastal issues; if you’re along the I-5 corridor (Portland to Ashland), you won’t have the same issues. Me, I like Vancouver, WA, just across the river from Portland, but no state taxes.

      So they have been warned officially.. they always do this, but not enough. They know the cascadian Subduction zone fault line will cause massive scale deaths but they still tell the children in schools to get under their desks.

      Because in those states, Washington, Oregon, Northern California, those schools are NOT built to stand up to this, and they KNOW for a fact that that obsolete protocol will result in what they want – mass deaths and agonizing injuries and then certain death alone for each obedient child ordered to get under his and her desk or stand next to a wall. The roof will crush those children in the numbers that no one (but them) have even imagined yet. Why do the school boards still do this instane protocol, knowing that this is deadly, fatal and painful? Why do the states reject the triangle of life protocol, proven to save many many more lives than this old fatal policy?

      We have known since at least Haiti’s huge quake that this is the result, and the corresponding numbers of dead and severely injured children are totally unnecessary. Yet – the parents still tell their children that the teachers and principals want them to ‘be safe’. So to obey them, of course. These parents, after the Subduction zone quake hits, and the New Madrid fault slips like it did before, will rue that trust in these school boards, teachers and principals and politicians across the board, who were only interested in one thing: increasing the numbers of children murdered for the energy transfer, hence power to bring in the complete New Age Horus (Lucifer) whose power is from Satan.

      Parents: child sacrifice is essential in their religion. This religion is not for you, or your children, please get this information for your children’s sakes. Their lives depend on your doing that.

      Do not send a child to any school which has not heeded this life-saving protocol called The Triangle of Life. They by insisting on putting your children in direct danger via their stupid policy they know will not save them most of the time, prove to you parents they are not for the welfare of your children. They just use and abuse your offspring for personal power gain.

      Insist on adoption of the Triangle of Life protocol. Or do not put your precious child in that situation of almost guaranteed death in a megaquake.

      Those states on the Cascadian subduction from Vancouver Island on down to northern Cali, (and this connects to the San Andreas fault line) are not mega-quake ready since they have older architecture not built to withstand any quake, especially one over 8 magnitude. Same with those many states in the midwest over the New Madrid.

      They all use the obsolete insane deadly protocol. Why is this, if not for the reason I have said.

        @Wretched Infidel
        I am with you on this one,reason I moved away from the Coast but I think even in the Interior we will be hard hit,as there are many fault lines not just the saint andrew Faultr
        British Columbia has been preparing and updated some older Buildings in Vancouver.
        But neither would I trust the newer Highrises and ancient Chlorine Storage Tanks.
        The Big one is long overdue and any any heavenly changes will quicken the event
        No one however knows the Time,they did not forsee Fukushima and the list goes on…

    • Болеслава

      Its part of the psyop to keep everyone in a state of tension so they cannot think . Otherwise they would start to muse about the police state. That was the whole purpos eof the Cold War as well. No such thing as a cold war if you actually THINK about it.

    • Freeamerican

      Millions of people know about chemtrails and elf/haarp, how they make tornadoes and earthquakes, but people still sit around watching jew smut tv and movies and football and getting fat. They should be telling everybody about elf/haarp and the jews and boycotting everything, but they don’t. The jew zog runs everything plus the weapons, and have people in churches praying to die in their christian psy ops scam so they don’t do anything except pray. Liars in zog media lie about chemtrails, weather, do their phony preparedness messages but they’re liars helping to set up to kill people by covering up elf/haarp and pretending it’s just natural. It’s not, it’s elf. Fat dumb lemmings and leeches will get what they deserve. Too bad about everyone else.

      Maybe people should get off their backsides now and tell everyone about elf/haarp and the liar scums in media and government.

      I hate how I have been robbed of my future. I feel hopeless and there is no bright future for my children and the human race generally. I too have been living in fear, even though I have made a commitment of my life to Jesus, I can’t help but wonder why we have to be involved in this battle. I did not ask to be born – did I? I do my best everyday, i talk to people but they do not listen, they think I am a nutcase. I feel so alone and depressed. I plan to go down to the beach to see the Tsunami coming in. It will just be my luck to survive somehow and continue on in an evil world that will have become a prison. Poor me, poor everyone. Somehow i think that prepping is all just a waste of time. i see my home buried in rubble, unable to get to the food store buried deep beneath the mud and wreckage. Please god, let me die. If you want me broken, you have been successful. Oops, just committed the sin of unbelief. Not fit for the kingdom, not fit for the world. Woe is me, what am I to do? Does anyone really care anymore?

      What happened to freedom of speech!!!!!! There is none from the same people that whine for there rights, the person expressed there feelings on America will burn and you spin your top. And on Oregon what happened to common sense ???? If I knew the earth was going to open up and swallow me up whould I not get out of there, what has happened to the human race???

    • Anonymous

      What happened to freedom of speech??? I can see there is none here, the person has a right to there views such as Americans will burn, and as for the people in Oregon where is your common sense, if I knew the earth was going to open up and shallow me I thing I would find a new place to live.

    • bumpkin

      Let me guess: You are a paid Obamatroll, hired to cause divisiveness among Americans. Divide and Conquer! Either Obama and Co pay well, or you are NSA, which is now the branch of government that is spying on every one of us so the NWO/Obamaaites will know who to slap into their FEMA camps for re-training. We simply HAVE to find out which people think like you pretend to, so they can be rounded-up after the generated false-flag events that will herald in the final phase of the UN Agenda 21 fiasco/NWO debacle. After all, those Fema camps will need to be USED, right?

    • Wretched Infidel

      Yeah, they do, and they have a rotten corrupt culture as well, but Americans were given the truth from the start, unlike Mexicans, and I think this man’s comment was that he was making a point that (and of course mexicans will die too, there is no differentiation in natural cataclysms, they are equal opportunity unless a miracle from Yah, whom the Mexicans do not worship either) that America has too long gone the road of discarding the truth they were gifted with so freely. Mexicans have always been a benighted people. Mayans, Aztecs, Olmecs, etc. Americans came here to live a free and truthful life away from tyrannical dictatorship and subjugation, yet they do this to their own children now, and think it is good. Plus the tolerance of every sort of sin imaginable, to the ruination of their children’s futures…the ones that they let be born, that is.

      Worship and sacrifice to the Devil makes for very bad cataclysms. See history for that. Every culture that rose to the pinnacle of power and sacrificed to Satan has been wiped out. We are not going to be an exception to that historical rule, I would think.

    • Joerg Klaemt

      @Wretched Infidel

      Yah, whom the Mexicans do not worship either)

      What an assinine Comment!
      There are more Catholics in Mexico per Capita than in the U.S.A. just not as many Jews,since the Country has little to plunder. Wake up infidel !!!!!!!!!! unless you consider Catholics not praying to the same god.
