Most people involved in Volunteer Emergency Response already know that Oregon is at risk for a major earthquake 150 miles off the coast – The Cascadia Subduction Zone
Historically, over the last 10,000 years, geologists tell us that it’s shook on the average of every 300 years. The last one was in January 26, 1700, so we’re due. And when this releases, it will be the biggest single natural disaster ever to hit the United States.
Dr. Althea Rizzo, Geologic Hazards Program Coordinator at Oregon Office of Emergency Management, is an expert on this subject. She’ll be presenting a don’t miss program on what to expect and how to prepare at 12:30 in the Arts and Crafts building.
I’ve seen Althea’s program several times, and it’s definitely one you’ll want to attend. This could be the biggest event in any of our lives, with potentially devastating impact, so you’ll want to know how to be ready.
Don’t miss Althea’s program.
