Know What to do in the Event of an Earthquake
Knowing what to do in the event of a natural disaster or another unwelcomed event is crucial. Gathering a go-bag, plenty of food, water, and other survival supplies is strongly recommended to all Salem residents. Unfortunately, not all risks can be prevented or planned. The Pacific Northwest is sitting on a major fault line that is expected to slip within the next 50 to 500 years. Oregon also has neighbored some devastating earthquakes in the past. The most notable example being The Great 1906 San Francisco Earthquake. This disaster left thousands of casualties and destroyed close to 30,000 buildings. In 1989 there was the Loma Prieta San Francisco earthquake. This occurred during the World Series and many were in awe of the devastation this caused.
Preparing for such a disastrous event is almost impossible. However, when something falls down it is in our nature to pick up the pieces and rebuild.
