The Great Oregon ShakeOut

Posted: Friday, Oct 18th, 2013

A group of workers, including employees from the Oregon State University Hatfield Marine Science Center, participated in The Great Oregon ShakeOut at 10:17 a.m. on Thursday. The workers walked roughly one mile to a tsunami safe zone located near SW Ash and SE 40th streets. The walk took about 20 minutes. The event is held on the third Thursday of October each year. The goal is to prevent a major earthquake from turning into a catastrophe for individuals, according to organizers.
