An earthquake of Richter magnitude >=8, with epicenter within 100 miles of (one of the US states) CA,OR,WA,AZ,NV,ID will occur before the end of 2010.

Judge's Statement

Ambiguity clause: I will judge this claim based on its precise wording, unless this wording conflicts with my perception of the intent of the claim. If both intent and wording are ambiguous, I will look for a solution that causes the least damage to FX as a market and game. If you have any questions, or think you may have found a loophole, please contact me!!

Resources: See the USGS (US Geological Survey) at http://quake.wr.usgs.gov/ for information on Earthquakes in general.

FAQ: There are two main systems for measuring magnitude, Richter magnitude and moment magnitude. Moment magnitude is more widely used these days, however this claim specifically concerns Richter magnitude! I will attempt to get a Richter magnitude for any candidate earthquake, or to convert from moment to Richter.
