Teaser Tuesday: The Next Tsunami: Living on a Restless Coast by Bonnie Henderson

But Oregon had another problem, one most of California did not have. Not only was the earthquake scientists were now expecting off the Pacific Northwest Coast likely to be bigger than anything the San Andreas Fault could kick up – an apocalyptic quake, as Brian Atwater had described it – but the earthquake rupture zone was underwater.
-- The Next Tsunami: Living on a Restless Coast by Bonnie Henderson, published by OSU Press.

Henderson mixes science, history, and first-hand accounts to explain the risk of earthquakes and resulting tidal waves to the northwest coast of the United States.  Henderson shows how the next mega-quake under the Pacific Ocean will generate a tsunami "likely to be the most devastating natural disaster in the history of the United States."

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Mine this week is a bit of a new genre, an Amish adventure story:
