The Largest Earthquakes in the United States The following table lists the largest earthquakes in the United States on record, according to rank, magnitude, date, and location. The largest earthquake to hit the U.S. was on Ma , when a magnitude quake struck Prince William Sound in Alaska. Notable earthquakes in bold happened in Washington. The Cascadia subduction zone off the Washington and Oregon coast is capable of some of the largest earthquakes in the world. This fault will have an earthquake in the future, but we cannot predict exactly when. The moment magnitude scale replaced the Richter scale in the late ’s.

The history of the problem includes the s when a geology professor claimed that Washington was earthquake-proof, the mids discovery of evidence that a earthquake-and-tsunami struck all along the coast in January , and the confirmation of a quake in AD along a significant fault system that runs across Puget Sound /5(). Ground shaking is the most powerful predictor of damage from an earthquake. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Seismic Hazard Map shows the strength of ground shaking that has a 1 in 50 chance of being exceeded in a particular place in the lower 48 states over a period of 50 years. These maps are used in determining building seismic codes, insurance rates, and other.

The Cascadia earthquake occurred along the Cascadia subduction zone on January 26 with an estimated moment magnitude of – The megathrust earthquake involved the Juan de Fuca Plate from mid-Vancouver Island, south along the Pacific Northwest coast as far as northern length of the fault rupture was about 1, kilometers ( miles), with an average slip of 20 meters Epicenter: 45°N °W / 45°N °WCoordinates: .   Even after huge earthquakes, much of Southern California still unprepared for The Big One Volunteers at a Trona, Calif., church distribute food and .

Reactions following destructive events in the late 19th and early 20th centuries included real estate developers, press, and boosters minimizing and downplaying the risk out of fear that the ongoing economic boom would be negatively affected.

California earthquakes (–) According to seismologist Charles Richter, the San Francisco earthquake moved the United States. California, United States has had: (M or greater) 2 earthquakes in the past 24 hours earthquakes in the past 7 days; earthquakes in the past 30 days; 21, earthquakes.
