Public Geologic Hazards Workshop offered

Disaster Strikes: What Next?

Saturday, May 14th, 2-4 PM Mount Baker High School, Deming

                The Mount Baker High School Advanced Geology class is presenting a workshop on how natural hazards could and will affect the Pacific Northwest. From Mount Baker to the Cascadia Subduction Zone, there are many hazards that our community should be aware of. The MBHS geology class is trying to bring awareness to the community in order to keep people safe and to enhance understanding of the amazing geology in our backyards.  Keynote speakers Brian Atwater (U.S.G.S) and Rebekah Paci-Green (W.W.U.), will present stories from their research as well as highlight the geology of the area and the types of potential hazards.  Students will also offer mini workshops on what to do before, during and after a serious event. The workshop will take place on Saturday, May 14th, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Mount Baker High School Auditorium located at 4396 Deming Rd, Deming, WA.
