Cascadia Rising 2016 - June 7-10, 2016

The City of Newport joined with Lincoln County Emergency services in the Cascadia Rising 2016 event. Two scenarios where profiled; a smaller earthquake that causes some damage throughout the town but basic utilities are still functional, and a second much larger earthquake that causes major infrastructure failures leaving Newport and the coastal areas isolated. Both drills gleaned useful lessons to be adopted into future plans. This event is one of many, ongoing drills and exercises that engage both the City and the County in joint preparations.
