A California earthquake in 1992.

The Klamath Basin is no stranger to earthquakes.  A big one in 1993 damaged several buildings, including the county courthouse, which had to be replaced. 

Klamath Falls natives Steve Eberlein and Lydia Ledgerwood-Eberlein were living in Sri Lanka when a tsunami from the Indian Ocean quake of 2004 devastated the island.  They started a business, Tipping Point Resilience, to help people and organizations get ready for earthquakes like the Big One expected from the Cascadia Subduction Zone.  They host a free session in Klamath Falls Saturday (November 2nd), and visit with us in advance.
