New Yorker article got you down? Worried about Seattle falling into the ocean after the doomsday quake everyone is predicting? What the Fuca?

As Seattle natives ourselves, we've seen the articles lately:

  • The Earthquake That Will Devastate Seattle - The New Yorker
  • FEMA is planning for an earthquake that would devastate the Pacific Northwest - Business Insider
  • Earthquake experts on 'The Really Big One':Here's what will actually happen in Seattle - Geekwire

There is certainly a lot of hype and unnecessary panic out there, but the truth remains that a massive earthquake is a very real possibility. If you're worried or just want to learn more and see if you'll be ready when the moment comes, sign up for our upcoming event covering earthquake survival.

We're currently planning series of courses with local experts and partners. Let us know if you're interested and we'll be in touch with more.


Visit our friends over at Room Escape Adventures and see what it's like to be trapped in a room with a hungry zombie.
