EERI Washington – 2017 Central Mexico Earthquakes Seminar

From EERI Washington:

On September 19th, 2017, the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 Mexico Earthquake, a devastating M7.1 earthquake hit central Mexico. Within days, different groups of engineers and researchers traveled to Mexico to participate in reconnaissance and building assessment efforts and to learn from this significant event.

Join us as we learn more about the event of the 19-S earthquake so we can help prepare in the Pacific Northwest. The seminar will be a mix of presentations with a town hall discussion.

The seminar will include the following topics: seismology, ground motions and comparisons to the Pacific Northwest, building codes in Mexico, early warning systems, building damage and assessments, infrastructure damage, WAsafe – Washington State’s volunteers’ registry for engineers, architects, and inspectors.
