The Next Waste Coast Earthquake - Good News

Good news for BC!  (I'll do the bad news from Chile later).  People have been grumpy because everybody says the big subduction earthquake happens every 300 years, and the last one happened over 300 years ago!  This BSSA article has the happy news that the above is wrong!  The big earthquakes happen about every 500 years, with a wide uncertainty band.  Aren't we feeling better?
