A Story About Another Bridge…

I work in an underground warehouse in a building in Pioneer Square

and this clip shows what would happen three blocks away from where I work if a 7.o magnitude earthquake were to hit Seattle.

I was there in Pioneer Square fo when the Nisqually Quake hit in 2001 which was a 6.8.

I suppose there’s a reason why I write about things coming out of the ground a lot now days.

This visualization shows the collapse of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, part of Washington’s State Route 99, and adjacent seawall due to a seismic event. The simulated earthquake is similar to the 2001 Nisqually earthquake but lasts longer, is closer to Seattle, or has a slightly greater magnitude.
