I worry about the Cascadia subduction zone because I live right near it. I just hope that whenever that earthquake comes that it's a long time away in the distance and that it really is not as bad as everyone predicts.

I have been through several earthquakes here, and I happened to be San Francisco at a trade show when the 1989 earthquake occurred. I believe this is the Loma Prieta, California earthquake, which killed sixty-three people and caused six billion dollars’ worth of damage.

I do not look forward to any more earthquakes. Fortunately, I live out in the country, away from the big city, so hopefully the damage we experience out here will not be as bad. The big worry are the kids in the schools. My wife was in her 2nd grade classroom when the 2001 Nisqually earthquake occurred. That is the one that cracked the dome on the Capitol Building in Olympia -- pretty scary. However, the schools around here held together well during that quake.
