Earthquake resources: real-time information and upcoming classes!

In light of the earthquakes off the coast of BC last night and this afternoon, here are a few informational resources.

  • USGS Earthquake Resources – This excellent site includes maps of quake locations. You can also sign up to receive earthquake alerts and tsunami warnings in various forms from this page.
  • The PNSN group on Facebook  -The Pacific NW Seismic Network group on Facebook has real-time discussions with local scientists and earthquake experts, so it’s a great place to check following any local earthquakes. You’ll need a Facebook account in order to view this site.

Want more info about what to do before and after a disaster?  There are several upcoming classes and events that can help!

  • The Seattle Office of Emergency Management is hosting a SNAP (Seattle Neighborhoods Actively Prepare) class on Monday, November 5th, 6:30 – 7:45 PM at the Delridge Branch Library (5423 Delridge Way SW).  As well, they are offering Basic Disaster First Aid on Saturday, November 3rd, from 8:30 – 5 PM at the SW Community Center (2801 SW Thistle St).  Both classes are free, but registration is required for the First Aid session; visit the OEM event calendar for more details.
  • And, don’t miss our upcoming educational summit next Saturday, November 3rd, from 8:30 – noon at the Alki Community Center. Learn more about the emergency communication hubs and several other relevant topics that can help you be more prepared and resilient. We hope you’ll attend! 

Lastly, a reminder that you will find more resources on our Earthquake Preparedness page on this site, and in the Resources section of our West Seattle Be Prepared website.
