Know disaster before it arrives: Public meeting set in Kent for hazard reduction plan
The King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Partnership invites King County residents to participate in a public meeting Wednesday, Sept. 25, where the results of the county's most recent disaster analysis will be displayed and discussed.
The meeting – which runs from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Kent Senior Activity Center, 600 E. Smith St. – will open with a brief presentation on the results and progress of the King County Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan. After the presentation, there will be an open house with computer model simulation and hazard maps to show countywide disaster vulnerabilities.
Some of these vulnerabilities are:
• Flood – 50-year, 100-year and 500-year events
• Landslides and mass movements
• Severe weather
Partnership members and staff will be available to answer questions. A computer model will be available to demonstrate estimated damages if an earthquake or flood were to affect your community. Based on the results, experts will be available to discuss mitigation options that could limit future damage to your residence or property. Personal preparedness information will also be available to take home.
