March 11, 2016 is the 5th anniversary of one of the greatest natural disasters in recent history, the 9.0 earthquake off the northeast coast of Japan.

After the event, an OPB crew researching a potential similar event in Oregon traveled to the region. What would they see? What lessons could be gleaned? How prepared was Oregon for such an event?

Join us as we follow their journey of discovery. Immediately after the film, OPB producer Ed Jahn leads panelists and audience in a discussion and Q&A session.

Panelists:

Jay Wilson, Chairman, Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Committee

Dr. Chris Goldfinger, Director, Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Laboratory, OSU

Yumei Wang, Geotechnical Engineer, Oregon Dept. of Geology and Mineral Industries 

Allison Pyrch, Geotechnical Engineer, American Society of Civil Engineers
