Also, Happy Birthday
This birthday card was Inspired by the Cascadia Subduction Zone. In 2010, studies suggest that this zone has a risk as high as 37% in the next 50 years for a major earthquake of magnitude 8.0 or higher. It is estimated it could last up to 6 minutes. This would affect cities between Vancouver and Eugene and will be felt all the way down to northern California. An earthquake this powerful would damage even specially designed buildings including shifting them off foundations and causing liquefaction, a condition in which materials that are normally solid (like roads, parking lots, sidewalks and yards) behave like liquid. Think bridges, airports, schools and buildings. They are all at susceptible to liquefaction. Additionally, the sliding tectonic plates would create volcanic eruptions so powerful, the temperatures and pressure would be so extreme that it would melt the rock above them, let alone glacial oceans and mud would slide down the mountains destroying villages, towns and cities. Furthermore, an earthquake this violent would unleash a tsunami reaching heights of approximately 100 feet or more. In terms of destruction, it would cause $33 billion in damages, 39,000 buildings largely or totally destroyed and up to 130 simultaneous fires. Also, happy birthday.
