A quake similar to the large earthquake of 2001, which we all experienced here in the Pacific Northwest, could easily cause the collapse of the fragile Alaska Way Viaduct and the disintegration of the downtown waterfront area because of loose soil near the waterfront and under the roads.

This video depicts(in 3D CAD animation) a dire scenario of a large earthquake near the seattle area and it’s impact on the Viaduct and waterfront area. Surely the insurance premiums on these properties is astronomical, however businesses and homes around the Seattle area are not immune. Earthquakes can strike at ANY time and can cause millions in damages within about 30 seconds of a seemingly normal day.
