Storyboard Text

  • Isn't that one really long! Like from Northern California to British Columbia!
  • Don't worry. It will help raise awareness about how the Cascadia Subduction zone could create an eartquake soon!
  • Yeah it will be a large one that could affect many people in Yan City!
  • I'm worried about our presentation today
  • The Juan De Fuca and the North American Plates have been clashing together for a long time.
  • They create the Cascadia Subduction Zone. An earthquake from there is long overdue.
  • An Earthquake occurs when two plates push together along a fault, and cause the ground to shake
  • Earthquakes often time result in tsunamis. Tsunamis are large waves that come with immense force
  • That's why it is good to be prepared!
  • The last time that this happened was around 1700, and scientists suspect that it happen again in the next two years
  • The most important thing is to stay calm, and to try to help others. Make sure to stay away from old structures, glass, and heavy furniture.
  • Get down as close to the ground as you can. Being in a firmer structure like a basement can help you. ALWAYS remember to cover your head and neck with your hands.
  • Every family should have a plan of action in case of an earthquake. If you are by a coast make sure to get to high ground as fast as you can.
  • Having non-perishable food, and water with you is essential.
  • You also should have some source of temporary light that doesn't need electricity, or uses batteries. Having a First Aid Kit is necessary, as is having a whistle to contact help
  • It is best not to use a fridge or freezer while power is out, or else the food can go to waste. Candles and battery-powered flashlights are good alternatives to powered lights. Walking is usually the best form of transportation
  • You may notice that some appliances in your home won't work. Like a phone/laptop or a fridge. There are ways to help this.
  • ERROR101
  • Having a whistle with you can help signal to other where you are. Having a GPS tracking device can also help others locate you
