The Cascadia Subduction Zone runs 700 miles along the Pacific Northwest coast – from northern California up to Vancouver Island. The Juan de Fuca plate is shoved up against the North American tectonic plate – eventually, the plates will give way, and North America will spring back with an earthquake anywhere from an 8.0 on the Richter Scale to higher than a 9… it’s known as a megathrust earthquake. On this week’s podcast, Oregon Department of Energy Emergency Preparedness Manager Deanna Henry talks to us about Oregon’s Fuel Action Plan – and the steps we have in place to get much-needed fuel into the state for emergency responders and other essential services in a post-Cascadia Subduction Zone world.
