Cascadia Subduction Zone Mega Event-Earthquake, Tsunami, Volcanoes

The Cascade Subduction Zone and Earthquakes - Animation of the Cascadia region. As the Juan de Fuca plate is subducted beneath the continent, magma forms in the Cascade mountain range causing the expansion of the active volcanic arc. Deformation of rock around magma chambers can also cause earthquakes to occur.

The 1700 Cascadia earthquake was a magnitude 8.7 to 9.2 megathrust earthquake that occurred in the Cascadia subduction zone in 1700. The earthquake involved the Juan de Fuca Plate underlying the Pacific Ocean, from mid-Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, south along the Pacific Northwest coast as far as northern California, USA. The length of the fault rupture was about 1000 kilometers (620 miles) with an average slip of 20 meters (22 yards).
