CREW President to Promote Cascadia Earthquake Safety at the White House
CREW Board President Ines Pearce will be participating in the White House Earthquake Resilience Summit on Tuesday February 2nd, 1016 in Washington D.C. Please read the CREW press release related to the event and the ongoing work of CREW to build resilience for a Cascadia Subuduction Zone Event.
Please read the Press Release from CREW on this exciting event.
Speakers address Cascadia issues in light of what we have learned from the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
The recent M5.3 earthquake in Colorado and M5.9 earthquake in Virginia serve as reminders that shallow earthquakes can happen away from known fault lines. The Cascadia Region has experienced many shallow historical earthquakes. A shallow earthquake on the Seattle or Portland Hills faults would result in widespread damage and disruption. For more information on shallow earthquake, refer to CREW Cascadia Shallow Earthquakes and our other scenario documents at: EQ Scenarios.
