“Region-wide, the agency expects to see seriously damaged or destroyed eighty-eight per cent of ports and potable water sources; seventy-seven per cent of fire stations and waste-water treatment plants; two-thirds of all airports, hospitals, railways, and schools; almost half of all highway bridges, police stations, and emergency command centers; plus almost three thousand miles of natural gas pipelines, seven hundred and forty-three electric power facilities, and nearly a million residential buildings.”

Today I will be discussing the Cascadia Subduction Zone Quake.  I will read part of the New Yorker article, “How to Stay Safe When the Big One Comes” by Kathryn Schulz.

I also wanted to talk about other areas that are not talked about by others.

Oregon Plans To Spend Big On Earthquake Preparedness

****Note from J.Bradbury– what the above article doesn’t tell you is that they had every intention of spending all that money to safeguard the capital instead.  Something or someone outside of them must have made them change their minds.

***Senate President Peter Courtney called it a loss, saying: “They’ve told us over and over that the Capitol is unstable and will collapse.”*

P.S:  Senator Courtney your a narcissistic jerk, I truly hope you get voted out.  He is basically saying, my life is worth more than thousands of children.
