ShakeOutBC 2018 will happen at 10:18 a.m. on October 18!
While potential earthquake hazards depend on your location, everywhere in British Columbia is considered at high risk for earthquakes in relation to the rest of Canada. For example, on January 26, 1700, a magnitude 9 earthquake (similar to the 2011 Tohoku earthquake off the coast of Japan) shook the entire province as well as Washington, Oregon and California. It also generated a massive tsunami.
What we do now will determine our quality of life after our next big earthquake. Are you prepared to survive and recover quickly?
The Great British Columbia ShakeOut is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes: DROP! COVER! HOLD ON!
