A catastrophic earthquake hits Canada's West Coast. In Fault Lines CBC Vancouver Seismologist Johanna Wagstaffe guides you through two disastrous scenarios so you can prepare yourself, your family, and your neighbours.
Johanna sets up two different, equally likely scenarios. First, The Big One: a 9.1 mega-thrust earthquake. Then, the lesser known 7.0 magnitude crustal quake which is shallow and strikes beneath the city of Vancouver. The outcome is catastrophic.
The West Coast is cut off from the rest of BC and Canada. A major tsunami has hit the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Those who survive gather and try to locate loved ones. Emergency workers race to rescue those who are trapped and assess the damage.
Survival and resilience are key to the rebuilding efforts. Hear how to have the plan you need so you can do it. Two survivors of Christchurch quakes share their essential tips. Preparation is empowerment. We are all in this together.
