Big earthquake to strike Oregon coast
sooner than thought

19 Apr 09 - "The amount of devastation is going to be unbelievable," says Rob Witter, coastal geologist with the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries. "People aren't going to be ready for this. Even if they are prepared, they are going to be surprised by the level of devastation."

Witter says scientists are now in wide agreement that there's a 10 to 14 percent chance a powerful earthquake and tsunami will strike the Oregon coast in the next 50 years.

“Tsunamis could reach as high as 80 to 100 feet in Oregon, which is similar to the tsunami that struck Sumatra, says Witter.
