My advice? Relax, build a long-term-shaking-and-tsunami-resilient society, and play it as it lies.
PNSN was established in 1969, prompted by Washington’s 1965 magnitude 6.7 earthquake. Led by the UW with partners throughout the Pacific Northwest, PNSN monitors and interprets widespread volcanic activity and plate tectonic movement--as well as localized phenomena like Marshawn Lynch’s Beastquake in 2011, generated by fans at Qwest Field.
PNSN is innovative partnership in action, bringing together scientists from universities and federal agencies to study volcanic and seismic activity, earthquake waves, and earth liquefaction during shaking. UW seismologists have led the field in presenting science to the general public, widely sharing their findings in popular magazines, through social media, and on the web. Armed with the latest scientific information from PNSN, government and civic leaders are reducing risk through building retrofits and early warning networks here in “earthquake country.”
