Earthquakes in Portland? Since when?!

Portland Prepared

The Pacific Northwest has long been an area stricken by earthquakes and tectonic forces.  The problem is... no one thought to Google that information as they were building cities along the entire West coast, 200 years ago.  Then earthquakes started to level the cities of California in the 1800's and, in the early 1950's, Portland learned that we were also in the same boat.

It's no longer a case of 'if' it will happen, but 'when' and now that we know that, what we choose to do about our own personal preparedness can determine how well we will fare in the days after the next 'event of note'.
