« Lost in Salem: Councilor Bednarz' mile-long downtown bridge backup | Main | Depressing -- tonight's Salem Police Facility Task Force meeting »

April 26, 2015


Thanks for your Open Letter Brian. The events in Nepal this weekend should surely give our elected leaders some cause for concern. It was a 7.8 magnitude earthquake that collapsed buildings and has caused over 3,000 deaths. As you know we are going to have a 9.0 megaquake. According to the USGS earthquake calculator, a 9.0 earthquake is 63 times stronger than a 7.8 magnitude earthquake.

You are right that our elected leaders need to make it their #1 priority to prevent this death and destruction from happening in Salem in the coming decades.
