Dr. Burns will discuss the hazards of and the preparedness for ground shaking, liquefaction, landslides and tsunamis along the subduction zone. Much of our region was not thought to be an earthquake region, so earthquake building standards are fairly recent. How does this affect building codes, emergency preparedness, siting of critical facilities, building of bridges and transportation corridors in our region? What can we expect after a large quake? Dr. Burns will answer these questions!
