It happens every few hundred years, and it slams the Oregon Coast with powerful earthquakes and huge tsunami waves.
We’re not exactly overdue for it, but it could happen at any time.
The Big One – a Cascadia Subduction Zone Quake – a truly disruptive natural disaster.

Central Oregon Daily’s Allen Schauffler brings us the first of a two-part look at the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and what it could do to our world.
Join us on Thursday for Part 2 and a look at what Central Oregonians can expect once the dust settles after the Big One and how we can prepare ourselves for the lasting effects.
