Cascadia preparedness: Drilling for ‘the big one’

 At 8 a.m. Monday morning a 9.0 earthquake strikes on the Cascadia Subduction Zone, severely shaking Del Norte County and the rest of the northern West Coast for more than five minutes. 

Within a few short minutes, coastal communities are devastated by towering tsunami surges — recorded at 49 feet high in Crescent City — while isolated mountain communities like Gasquet are cut off from normal supply chains of food, power and communication.

In Del Norte, there are 285 civilians killed, 580 civilians injured and at least 8,000 people displaced. Just like in 1964, downtown Crescent City, including City Hall, the police department, the Del Norte County government building, and Del Norte County Sheriff’s Office, have all been completely destroyed.

This hypothetical Cascadia scenario was drilled by state, federal and local emergency agencies this week for the California Office of Emergency Services annual state-level exercise, which drills one specific disaster that is possible in the state each year.

The “Map of the Movies: Filmed on the Redwood Coast,” which has been in the works since last year, will be ready for distribution in time for the commission’s unveiling party on May 29 at the Battery Point Lighthouse, where Tim McGraw’s “Not a Moment Too Soon” music video was shot in 2009.
