The thing I seem to remember from my reading is to build the foundation higher than the 1000-year flood level. In some circumstances this might give you the cob equivalent of a japanese castle with ten feet of stone and the cob on top, but it'd stand above flood levels, and with a concrete reinforcement layer on the top it'd stand up to earthquakes pretty well too.
