It’s finally underway – Refuge from a horrific earthquake and tsunami

Work has begun on a very ambitiously designed building to provide immediate evacuation at Hatfield Marine Science Center in the event of the long anticipated Cascadia Subduction Zone and tsunami.

Construction equipment is gathering at the South Beach location which will give students, faculty and anyone else a place to evacuate to,  because shortly after the earthquakes stops its horrendous shaking, a tsunami will roar ashore within 15 to 20 minutes – barely enough time to scramble up the new buildings’ stairs.

The construction of the $50 million dollar building is under way with a completion date aimed for early 2020.

Here’s the story in The Oregonian as compiled by Newport area journalist Lori Tobias.  Click here.
