After the Cascadia Event



running time:  One hr and two min.

Today we go over what some of my thoughts are regarding what to do AFTER the Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake.  I am coming from the angle of an unaware neighborhood (which is most of them).   What immediate objectives do we need to get setup to increase are odds of survival.  This is NOT a complete list by any means.  Think of it as a brain storm to help get you started.
