Most of us know that earthquakes and tsunamis are possible.  Many of us believe they won’t happen in our lifetime.  What if we’re wrong?

Do you know what to do?  Run?  Stay where you are?  How much time between the quake and the incoming water?

Perhaps it is time to answer some of these questions.

Dr. Jonathan Allan from Oregon’s Department of  Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) is coming to our town in order to describe a new Beat the Wave study scheduled soon for our area.

The local Beat the Wave mapping program will help us to answer these questions before an earthquake to save precious time after one:

  • How much time to have do I have?
  • How fast do I need to go?
  • Where do I go?

Where? Pine Grove Community Center Manzanita  When? March 6 from 1 pm to 3 pm.
