Are You Prepared For A Disaster?

Do you know what to do in the case of disaster?
Even if you think you do, there’s always new information to be learned. The city is holding a listening session from 5:45 to 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, at City Council Chambers, 1333 N.W. Eastman Parkway, with the topic of emergency preparedness to help the community prepare for natural disasters.

The session will be hosted by Council President Mario Palmero and Councilors Jerry Hinton and Lori Stegmann.

An 8.9 quake, like the one in Japan in 2011, is only possible in subduction zones, according to the city’s disaster preparedness information. The only U.S. subduction zones in the U.S. are in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.

“I think about an earthquake and I think, ‘Oh, I can’t get water, but I don’t think in terms of I can’t drive because the roads will be literally destroyed or washed away -- that just drove it home even more that people need to make sure at a minimum that they have water,” Stegmann said. “People need to know they could be completely isolated.”

Free refreshments, interpreters and child care will be available.

TICK. TOCK.
Think of Oregon geology as a clock, measuring time in earthquakes. Tick: a magnitude 8 quake. (Bigger than 1989 Bay Area quake that killed 63 people.) Tock: a magnitude 9 quake. (Same as the 2011 Japan quake that killed almost 16,000 people.) On average, a major quake happens in our area every 243 years, the last one was January 26, 1700 — 316 years ago. Yes. We are overdue.

When the next Big One does happen, a 700-mile long section of the tectonic plate known as the Juan de Fuca, stretching from British Columbia to Northern California, will slide beneath the North American plate, causing the entire Northwest coast-line to sink up to 6.6 feet. This won’t be a California-style short burst of energy quake in the earth’s upper crust. The Big One will be bigger, deeper, and last longer: 3–4 minutes, with dozens of after-shocks, some very powerful, for days, months, or later.

The Cascadia Subduction Zone is 700 miles long, located 100-150 miles off shore of British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and northern California. Info here!

Hillsides will slide. Buildings will collapse. Roads will buckle. High-rises will sway. Bridges will crack. Some will fall. Pipes will snap. Within 20 minutes, the first of several 40-foot tsunami waves will wash away the Oregon Coast’s low-lying towns.

If our next “subduction zone” quake unleashes its full potential, it will be the worst natural disaster in U.S. history.

America's Night Out
Against Crime!

When: Tue Aug 4th, 2015 All Day!
Where: Your Neighborhood!

Celebrate the 32nd anniversary of National Night Out by hosting an event in your neighborhood on August 4th.

Last year millions of people, from every state, across 15,000 communities participated in events to help make communities safe and raise awareness about anticrime programs.

National Night Out is a time when individuals and groups are encourgaged to gather together after dark in parks and other public places for wholesome activities. The idea is to symbolically reclaim our public spaces by using them, encouraging other people to use them and making the space feel safe, and discouraging illegal and anti-social activity.

Go ahead -- invite your neighbors -- gather on someone's lawn or porch and turn-on the lights! Celebrate National Night Out 2015. Take a stand.

Don't let crime control your neighborhood.
