Imagine the 6.8 magnitude Nisqually earthquake – for 5 minutes. Or the 6.2 magnitude Amatrice, Italy earthquake that destroyed roads, water service, electrical power and more for weeks. While the news highlights “the big one,” what will happen when a much more probable “normal” earthquake hits? Will the Tacoma fault or another nearby fault rupture? With a region so dependent on highways, utilities and health care, what will likely happen? How can families with children, seniors and individuals with disabilities prudently prepare? Find out what you can/should do today and in the coming months.
