Earthquakes 101: Quake Histories and Hazards in the Central U.S.
Wednesday, February 13, 2013 @ 2:00 PM-3:30 PM
On Science Series
Featured Speaker: Phyllis Steckel, RG, Earthquake Insight LLC
Minimizing earthquake risk is a funny business. The payoff may not come for a long time — and then it will be in terms of what did not happen. Don’t miss this Earthquakes 101 session. You’ll learn about regional earthquake vulnerabilities, risk, and history, including the infamous 1811-1812 New Madrid earthquakes where the river ran backwards. Hear about earthquakes and structures and the lessons learned in Haiti, New Zealand and Japan; and come away with an overview of needed actions and policies.
