Is Oregon next?

Two weeks ago, California experienced a number of earthquakes off the west coast that were upwards of 7.0 magnitude. Last Friday, Washingtonians were shaken awake by a 4.6 magnitude earthquake in the Seattle and Everett area.

Is Oregon next?

How long before The Big One – estimated to be greater than a 9.0 magnitude by expert geologists – hits the Cascadia Subduction Zone, causing billions in damage and claiming thousands of lives?

As I said when I introduced The Pacific Northwest Earthquake Preparedness Act of 2019, our safety is of the utmost importance to me. I'm proud that this bill has passed the House.

I cannot stress this enough: passing this bill is just the first step. I will continue to push until we are fully prepared to protect our communities up and down the coast.
