KAST's Tom Freel interviews Peter Ovington, geological hazards outreach coordinator for the State Department Of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) as communities along the coast hold events over the next few weeks to distribute new information to help people prepare their own plan in the event of an earthquake and tsunami warning. There are two information websites you may want to bookmark. www.oregontsunami.org and http://www.oregongeology.org/hazvu/
Oregon Tsunami is a site that has all the maps and other information anyone can use for planning evacuation routes, tips on how to put together a "grab and go" pack and information on local meetings. HAZVU is a mapping site that allows you to plug in your address and select from various hazards so you can see how things like potential landslides, flooding, and even volcanic eruptions might affect your home or business.
