Earthquake Resilience Report
City Club of Portland has released its Earthquake Resilience Research Committee report titled “Big Steps Before the Big One: How the Portland area can bounce back after a major earthquake.” The committee concluded that the Portland area must pursue strategies that focus on creating systems to preserve social and physical infrastructure. Immediate and ongoing investment will help the region bounce back after an earthquake.
“Portland-area communities are built atop tectonic forces beyond anyone’s control, but the region is not helpless,” the report states. “The Portland area is not yet prepared, but leaders and the public are learning what must be done to reduce damage and recover quickly from the earthquake’s impacts.”
