The number I heard was better than 2% chance of a 9.0 quake there every year which will cut off the coastal areas from the I5 corridor.
So ham radio and camping could be very important skill sets.
I'm in Salem, on a hill, right off I-5. The biggest problem with a big shake will be the bridges. It's really hard to get anyplace without going over or under a bridge. My trailer is pretty much read to go at any time. However I expect that is the "big one" hits I'll be living in the trailer right where it sits.
