Over 150 years ago, a vibrant city was founded on the West Coast. Today, it's a thriving metropolis known for its quality of life. But deep below the picturesque scenery, there is a geological feature that could threaten the entire population - an earthquake fault that runs along the entire city. This is not Los Angeles. This is not San Francisco. This is Seattle - and it could be devastated at any moment.The Seattle area is home to companies whose products touch Americans every day - Boeing, Microsoft, and Starbucks. The city is the birthplace of the grunge rock revolution of the 1990s. People spend a lot of time hanging out in coffee houses. But a double espresso isn't the only thing that can give you a good jolt around here.Cloudy with a chance of disaster: listen to the entire It Could Happen Tomorrow series from The Weather Channel.
