A Note about Alaska Earthquake
With the earthquake in Alaska last night and the tsunami warning in coastal BC area. I thought it would be a good time to remind everyone to get prepared. We are an active earthquake zone and Richmond has high risks such as liquidation and being an island, bridges could be down. We can survive it by being prepared and helping each other. Talk with your neighbors on how you can help each other and make sure you have a meeting spot to find your loved ones and a out of area contact. Practice at home with your children.
Listen to this if you need some motivation to get prepared. Fault Lines CBC podcast-Canada's West Coast. In Fault Lines CBC Vancouver Seismologist Johanna Wagstaffe guides you through two disastrous scenarios so you can prepare yourself, your family, and your neighbours.
