Disaster Resistant Community (DRC) is hosting the Evansville Earthquake Hazards Maps presentation. On Tuesday, February 7, new earthquake hazards maps of the Evansville area will be unveiled to the public. The event will take place at the Southern Indiana Career & Technology Center, which is located at 1901 Lynch Road in Evansville, Ind. The program is free and open to the public.
These earthquake hazard maps are important because the Evansville area is at risk from both the New Madrid and the Wabash Valley seismic zones. The maps can be used by business leaders, city planners, utilities, and emergency managers to better prepare for future earthquakes. The maps are also of interest to property owners and the general public.
