I don't know about that. VI is quite mountainous and is physically on the path of the hypothetical earthquake; I suppose some of the waves would "funnel" through Juan de Fuca but then they'd make it to the Puget Sound first, and there would be the Juan de Fuca/Gulf Islands as barriers to the Lower Mainland. I'm no seismologist but I think average sea levels wouldn't rise much by the time it got here; Richmond could be in trouble still though.
