Immigrants and Refugees Face Barriers to Earthquake Preparedness

October 20, 2015

Refugees and recent immigrants in Oregon face unique challenges when preparing for a possible Cascadia megaquake. Communities from Burma, Nepal, Somalia, Iraq and other countries each bring different languages, experiences and cultural associations that are not always addressed by standard emergency preparedness sessions. Stocking up on water and supplies can also be doubly hard for low-income immigrant families who live in smaller housing.

We'll learn more about what people in these communities are doing to help educate each other about the Cascadia megaquake.
