The Juan de Fuca plate moves laterally along the NA plate, right? So when we get a quake here, it is going to be huge. The longer the wait, the bigger it gets. Since we haven't had a major one, we are due for one helluva big earthquake.

Its not about the wait. Its about the hiccups in the subduction process of the plates.

Hey guys, another update:

Watching NHK, a lot of the focus is mainly on the tsunamis up north. It showed about 10 minutes ago a wave of water sweeping into Aomori. Pretty scary watching that live. Right now on TV, it's showing a growing tsunami still a ways offshore of Miyagi-ken.

In terms of damage in the city, most of the buildings are in-tact. However, they did show a building completely crumbled in Fukushima. Another education institution had their roof collapse and everyone was outside. There were tarps and a few ambulances outside and a lot of paramedics working on people.

Early estimation is 216 billion yen of damage but not like that even matters at this point and time.
