Water, Disasters, and Preparedness

This blog does not generally cover topics related to natural or coastal hazards. But disasters are very much in the news, and water–the overabundance of it in the case of tsunamis or preparing for having clean water in the event of a disaster are obviously very germane.  Below is a list of some excellent resources for both issues and much more.

CORVALLIS, Ore. — As the devastation of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami become more evident, those of us who live along the Pacific Ocean’s “Ring of Fire” wonder if we’ll be prepared for an equally destructive quake and its tsunami that could come to our doorsteps at any time.

To help prepare, the Extension and Experiment Station Communications (EESC) office has just completed an update of its webpage “It Could Happen to You: Be Prepared for Natural Disasters” at http://extension.oregonstate.edu/tough_times/emergency/natural-disasters

Other resources are:

  • Also, learn about your community’s disaster plan and create a plan for your family, home and office with It Could Happen to You” publications developed by the OSU Extension Service.
