This state spends Billions of dollars of taxpayer money every single year and now someone figures out that they don't have adequate emergency disaster plans.
Imagine my surprise.
Clean water is something I need to get more of but if a MAJOR earthquake hit around here it would flatten everything for miles and then it would be game on anyway, no matter what those overpaid idiots did.
Washington state is grossly unprepared for a large earthquake and tsunami that may strike in the coming decades, putting it at risk for a humanitarian disaster, the Seattle Times reported on Sunday, citing a draft government report.
Anticipating a poor response to such a disaster, the state's emergency managers will begin asking residents to stock enough food and other supplies to survive on their own for two weeks, the newspaper said.
The Pacific Northwest region was once thought to be a low risk for a massive earthquake, compared with its coastal neighbor California.
Researchers, however, have come to believe that an 8.0 to 9.0 magnitude temblor has shaken Oregon and Washington every 230 years or so. The last struck about 315 years ago, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, so one is overdue.
To prepare for that possibility, Washington officials organized a four-day exercise called "Cascadia Rising" in June, and the results were laid out in a draft report, the Seattle Times reported.
In the mean time peoples, jut keep watching the games being played and all will be well.
