Along these lines of odds and probabilities, what
would someone say the odds are for a 7.3(?) eqk to hit
during a typhoon blowing 160+ mph winds? Apparently,
that happened a few years back, around 2000, in the
Marianas...


To chime in, in the Tahoe area even at lake level,
you'll have snow for close to 6 months of the year. Just the other day, there was a 4.9 eqk near Truckee
(north of Lake Tahoe) that threw items off of store
shelves. Now, imagine if that hit in February with a
few feet of snow on top of a primo 6,000s.f. lakefront
estate with "structural" glass fronting the Lake?


But, I digress...
