The average cycle for the types of earthquakes that would are characterized as, “the big one” is about 243 years, using the last 10,000 years as a measuring stick. We are beyond this average measure by 75 years. The chances of one of these earthquakes in the next 50 years is roughly between 10% and 33%. Such a quake is predicted to cause up to 30,000 landslides in the Seattle area alone (Schulz, Kathryn. “The Really Big One”, The New Yorker 2015).
