Which would be scariest to happen do you think? Don’t answer based on which one’s actually happen where you live.
Sandstorm? Fire? Earthquake? Blizzard? Monsoon? Tornado? Avalanche? Mud slide? Volcano?

I live in Washington state, and receive notifications from the USGS about earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest area. There have been a series of quakes off the Oregon coast over the past 10 days or so - the largest was a 5.2. I’m not a geologist by any stretch of the imagination, but I was watching the news last night, and a short piece on the quakes mentioned that this kind of series of quakes is usually associated with volcanic eruptions. Of course, right now, there IS no volcano in that region; is it possible that we’re about to see a new one begin? I’d be curious to know what people educated in this sort of science think - thanks!
Btw - I’m not "worried" about it or anything; I’m just wondering if it’s POSSIBLE. I certainly think it would be fascinating to see if it occurs, but I have no idea if that’s possible. I do remember MANY years ago (I’m 53) the process of a volcano (in the Atlantic, I think) turning into an island; it was documented in something like Life or National Geographic, but I was much too young at the time to do much more than look at the pictures.

Ok - yeah, I know about the Cascade volcanoes, of course (I can look out my window and see Rainier, after all…). I guess it’s just that the USGS folks are saying there’s no volcano in the immediate area of the quakes, so I’m wondering if it’s reasonable at all to think that another one MIGHT form. Of course, I know it would take an EXTREMELY long time to form to the size of a Rainier or a St. Helens, but *could* this be the start of a new one?

like a live doppler radar that you can move around or something, or a volcano reactivity chart (but not just pictures) something you can operate kind of. maybe something like an earthquake measurer or i heard of this thing and dont know the URL but its program where you type in where you live what size of a meteor would hit and all this other stuff and it shoes a video of what a meteor would be like hitting you

One day, my teacher told a student to put their cell phone away, but they did not have a cell phone out! All they had out was a bottle of water! She thought the bottle of water was a cell phone! One day she said mercury is a heavy metal that is poisonous and that is why people in heavy metal rock bands die all the time. Then she mispronounces peoples names that are not even close to their real names. Also, she threw a student out of class that was not doing anything. She was right infront of the student for the whole time too! The student was doing nothing wrong! Also, she mistook a tornado for an earthquake, then later that day she mistook it for a volcano! She also sounds just like Elmer Fudd, she gets her r’s and l’s mixed up with w’s! She also thinks Scooby Doo came out of the tv! So what do you think of this teacher. FYI there is more to this story, but it would be a very long story!!!
Did I forget to mention that she threw out two students who were playing?! She said they were wrestling on the floor, but they were not doing anything close to that. So they got suspended because she thought they were wrestling. She’s not to smart.
She may have think she has been to Mars!
Did I forget to mention that this student one day was passing out lotion and the teacher thought he was selling drugs! She thought the lotion was drugs! Is that lol, sad, or both?!
TheMrWilk is a stupid mofo! He is a loser who knows nothing! That is why nobody likes him! He’s just a big baby who looks up to Pat Robertson and Ann Coulter! I bet he is a racist cracker!

I just got off the phone with someone residing in Austin.
She seemed like she was pretty much oblivious to the fact that Texas does indeed have earthquakes. Apparently she and her other coworkers think Texas is somehow immune to earthquakes and they just happen elsewhere.

I seen some show on TV relating to weather patterns by state.
Texas has the most prolific weather patterns, just because it is a BIG state. Earthquakes, Floods, Fires, Tornadoes, Hurricanes, etc. The most extreme weather than any other state.

Anybody who still does not believe Earthquakes happen in Texas can read the following.
https://earthquake.usgs.gov/regional/states/texas/history.php

I just hope others that live in Austin are not as oblivious to that fact.
The question about what the ideal place to live was asked. There really is none. You take the good with the bad.
Even though you may never experience a devastating weather pattern in your area, doesn’t mean you are immune to them.

It is a gamble. Who really knows when where or if something will actaully happen?
There are certain risks that can be avoided, but other risks get magnified.

(You don’t live next to the ocean. Therefor, the odds are you won’t experience a hurricane. But the odds of something else happening i.e. tornadoe increases.)

You just have to take your chances and hope for the best.
That’s really all you can do.
You could live next to a volcano for a few hundered years. It might not blow, but all that matters is when it actually does go off.

Yeah, so people never actually feel it. That doesn’t mean it will never happen. It has in the past and is fact.

Just because it doesn’t happen often enough to cause massive damage, doesn’t mean it is not true.

I know there are other things more important to worry about than earthquakes in Texas.

I am just stating that they do happen.

People who say it is not possible fall into
a category called complacency.

Nowhere is perfect.
How can people say it is all a matter of perspective?

Is the USGS some sort of elaborate hoax and that they really don’t know what they are talking about?

Texas is just some sort of stable state that never has earthquakes and is immune to earthquakes? It only feels the effect of some other state and is quickly dissipated?

I know you are giving your input, but dang, just say yes. They do have earthquakes.
The recorded history is not enough to make headline news. Yet.

I live in N.E. Oklahoma, and I haven’t heard a full song from beginning to end all day, due to the emergency interruptions for tornado warnings. Anyone else having this problem?

Hurricane?
Volcano?
Earthquake?
Tsunami?
Cyclone?
…….you get the picture.

Im only focused on america at the moment, we can expand to the rest of the world later,
So say there was an earthquake in CA, the one that will drop it into the ocean one day supposedly. a 9.5 say,
So CA falls into the ocean, Yellowstone National Park is just a Giant inverted volcano, Say the earthquake were so powerful it were to disrupt the plates enough to make Yellowstone go off,

Can you think of anything else that could be chain reaction off of these events

Did I forget to mention that these two students were only playing in class and she kicked them out because she thought they were wrestling on the floor. They were not wrestling on the floor, they got suspended because she thought they were doing something they were not doing even close to doing. As I said, she is slow dawg!
Also, she mistook a dark skined black girl for a light skined black girl! She also called someone Britany even though that person’s name was no where close to that name!
Just to let you know the student was not talking to the bottle of water, the student was drinking it! The teacher also thinks she went to Mars!
