“The Great Tsunami of 1700: During the 18th century, Native America villages occupied the mouts of nearly every stream along this coastline – including here at Siletz Bay. Since native peoples probably had little idea about the relationship between earthquakes and tsunamis, they were etaken by surprise in January 1700, when this beach was hit by a devastating tsunami. References to great flooding and ground shaking events in the oral traditions of many Pacific Norwest coastal tribes are probably the records of this event. On January 26, 1700, the earth shook violently in the throe of a magnitude 9+ earthquake that occured along the great offshore fault system called the Cascadia Subduction Zone. From northern California to British Columbia, the ocean floor heaved upward approximately 20 feet, and within 10-30 minutes a giant wave up to 50 feet high reached the shore. The wave probably struck this beach only 20 minutes after the earthquake. Devastating waves from this event continued to strike the entire coastline for several hours, flooding beaches, bays, tidal channels, and marshes. Today we know that major earthquakes and tsunamis occur along this segment of the Pacific coast approximately ever 200-1000 years – we also know what to do when the earth shakes. “Lincoln City, Oregon.
