Relatively low odds, bit i figured the extra $50 a year for earthquake insurance on my house was worth it.

He's also featured in this CBS segment:  https://youtu.be/f4l7tHGLgA4

  - On a preparedness scale of 1 to 10 the PNW is maybe a 1.

  - 33% chance the next one hits within 50 years.

  - Minimum 10k deaths, many, many more if the beaches are crowded during tourist season.
