hey look a massive record breaking drill involving 14million people regarding the cascadia subduction zone from .... 2012.
i lived on the oregon coast prior to 2011 and i remember these huge drills hitting ats almost every year for the same reason "biggest ever"
ya the scope these drills cover are impressive and worth discussion, but they are also standard operating procedure for the west coast now.
i remember hearing the tsunami sirens as part of the drill, they test those once a month, i remember thinking isnt that test supposed to be a
different day this month then looking it up to see it was one of these massive drills,
kinda off topic i guess but i think drilling to much has an opposite effect, it lowers reaction times, people get so complacent and used to hearing
the siren once a month when it goes off they just assume its another test.
where i live now we have the same sirens but for tornados and likewise they test them once a month, couple weeks ago a tornado hit our town, everyone
i spoke to about it said the same thing when they heard the siren they ignored it assuming it was another test, until it kept going a few minutes then
they realized it was not a test.
