This summer, our guest today, New Yorker journalist Kathryn Schulz wrote what may be the most powerful story of her life.  It also must have been one of the most painful she will ever have to report. Schulz wrote in a long, deeply researched story, that the coastal areas of the Pacific Northwest, northern California, Oregon, Washington and the SW corner of Canada faced a very real threat of mass-scale death and destruction from seismic shock, from a huge earthquake followed by a tsunami that be of about the same scale as one that swamped the Fukushima nuclear power plant and much of the NE coast of Japan in March 2011.
