Description

  • In the late 80s, scientists discovered the Cascadia Subduction zone--a geologic time bomb along the Oregon coast capable of generating magnitude 9.0 megaquake similar to the one that struck Japan in 2011. Evidence now suggests there is a 1 in 3 chance Oregon will experience this Cascadia megaquake in the next 50 years. After a barrage of national attention about what Oregon faces, many Oregonians are left wondering: What can we do to get ready?

    Oregon Field Guide spent a year and a half probing into the state of Oregon's preparedness, and found that when it comes to bridges, schools, hospitals, building codes and energy infrastructure, Oregon lags far behind many quake-prone regions of the country.
