Aftershock uses data from modeling done by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries to predict what you will feel during a 9.0 earthquake, how long your neighborhood will take to reconnect to basic services, such as water and power, and what you can do to prepare based on your location in Oregon.
Oregon State University Extension Service’s free online training is open to everyone. It includes videos, narrated presentations, virtual reality simulations, interactive maps, articles and other resources exploring what the earthquake and tsunami will be like and how those affected can manage the subsequent recovery.
A major earthquake off the Pacific Northwest coast could happen at any time. OSU Extension is playing a critical role in helping Oregon's people and communities prepare for this predicted natural disaster.
