Tsunami Preparedness Day Three - Reflections on the Situation In Snohomish County

In light of the ongoing situation near Oso in Snohomish County, the light hearted post originally scheduled today, a piece put out by San Diego County that utilized animated crab to educate kids about tsunami awareness, seemed less than appropriate. That video will appear here later in the week.

Today, the Pacific County Emergency Management Agency would like to take a moment to reflect on the tragedy unfolding in front of the entire nation. It happened so quickly, it happened so unexpectedly, and yet the results are utterly personal, profound and permanent. The strength of nature is at times incomprehensible.

We are observing Tsunami Preparedness Week, and this disaster event should underscore for each resident of Pacific County, the importance of preparing for such an event. It is easy to see, in the face of the unthinkable, that it really is not unthinkable at all.

The Pacific County Emergency Management Agency urges each one of you to be prepared for a Tsunami, or even more importantly , whatever disaster may occur. In addition, we extend our sympathy, our empathy, and our thoughts to all the people in Snohomish County and beyond, touched by the events there.
