Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and the American Society of Civil Engineers are coordinating community presentations focusing on what you need to know and how to prepare for distant tsunamis and the Cascadia subduction zone earthquake. The events are open to the public, free of charge, nor RSVP needed. We have also included an update from the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) on regional earthquake impacts.
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) will provide an hour-long documentary focusing on Oregon’s earthquake preparedness and provide an opportunity to meet and talk with the engineers’ involved ASCE project and your local emergency management representatives. The Unprepared video can be previewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3NlCXA6_kE . (Original media release from ASCE is attached.)
