Nisqually Earthquake + 10 Years

Feb 28

Taking advantage of the Nisqually Earthquake’s ten year anniversary were several retrospectives on note from key Washington disaster officials:

WEMD Director Jim Mullen posts his notes about how close we came to an even larger disaster, impacts of tightened budgetary constraints, and a chance meeting with FEMA’s head of preparedness efforts – who just happened to be in Christchurch for the latest quake: http://blogemd.blogspot.com/2011/02/thirteen-seconds.html

Seattle Office of Emergency Management Director, Barb Graff, pulled out a recent report that gives nice detail to the accomplishments done after the Nisqually Quake in Seattle: quite a lot!

Sadly this anniversary comes at a time that funding for the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network is facing significant budget cutbacks threatening many regional services.

Want Older Posts - or a Different Topic?

The above section lists a subset of all our blogs. Initially it is just the most recent ~20-25 blogs, but if you use widgets in the right column to specify a particular author, topic, starting date or other filtering criteria, the above display (and that on the home page) may reflect your choices.

If you just want older blogs, specify a different  starting date. If you want really old (circa 2005-2010) stories, see our archives from our previous site.

Subscribe for automatic delivery of these updates using RSS or Twitter using the tag VashonBPrepared - no 'e' to keep within the 15 character limit. These should automatically show up on our Facebook page too - but that's currently only works intermittently.

Other established VashonBePrepared volunteers can easily blog - contact der Tech Team to get set up.
