Isaac's Insights


February is Earthquake Preparedness Month

By Isaac Elting McGuire

On January 26, the Pacific Northwest celebrated the 322nd anniversary of the Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake. The earthquake was estimated at a magnitude of 8.7-9.2. The length of the fault rupture was approximately 620 miles with an average tectonic plate slip of almost 65 feet. The earthquake was so large that most of the data we have on it was recorded from the size of the tidal wave that struck Japan.

Experts agree that the NW is overdue for another earthquake of this magnitude. 

Are you ready? Make sure you have a plan. Here are some questions to ask yourself to make sure you are prepared: 

There is more information available on earthquake preparedness through the Oregon Office of Emergency Management. Please visit their website to get more information and to be the best prepared provider you can be!
