He may be referring to the Juan de Fuca fault off the coast of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. It slipped on January 26, 1700 with an estimate quake of Richter 9. Some geologists have suggested that it repeats every 300 to 500 years, but I have read one geologist's predicition that there is an 80% chance of it going in the next 50 years! I've been planning to get earthquake insurance on our home soon...
