Editors Note This book is about a huge earthquake in the Pacific Northwest and the terrifying consequences that follow. The quake and its three tidal waves totally destroy the beautiful and historic Deception Pass Bridge that crosses onto Whidbey Island, parts of the Naval Air Station nearby and sections of Oak Harbor. The devastation is seen through the eyes of many people: a young woman on her way to work, a man right at the bridge, a Navy jet's crew during takeoff from the air base, the Fire and Police Chiefs and Mayor of Oak Harbor, a church pastor, a professor of geology, and others. Their experiences provide diversely fascinating perspectives on what might happen someday. While fictional in some respects - particularly because it hasn't happened yet - most of the supporting facts in this book are accurate. It graphically illustrates the great importance of being prepared beforehand and presents a reason for hope in a citizen's project that succeeds elegantly and just in time - the design and construction of an emergency floatingbridge.
