Live web seminar on Quakes with Dr. Lucy Jones today 11AM

Dr. Lucy Jones is holding an online seminar this morning from 10AM -11AM.  She will be talking about the science behind the “big one”, the potential damage all in preparation for the “Shake Out” on November 13.  (The Shake Out as I wrote about before is the BIGGEST Earthquake Drill ever).

To view the seminar you do need to register with the Shake Out and can do so HERE

The complete email press release can be found after the jump.

Here are details about a special online presentation this morning (which will also be recorded and available for viewing later via the same website). Please forward this email to anyone who may be interested in participating.
Join Dr. Lucy Jones (USGS), in part one of this three-part online series, as she presents the “
ShakeOut Scenario,” the most comprehensive look at the impacts of a “Big One” on the San Andreas Fault. This recent scientific study included over 300 experts.

Dr. Jones will explain how these new conclusions were formed and how such an earthquake

can have devastating effects on our society — or not. She will discuss the major issues of water conveyance, fire following earthquake, economic disruptions, and infrastructure vulnerabilities.

The webinar will allow anyone to view Dr. Jones’ computer presentation while hearing her narration, followed by time for questions and answers.  To sign up, please visit:
