Preparing for Utah's "Big One"
There's geologic evidence of 6.5 and greater earthquakes violently shaking our region. Seismologists say it will happen again in Utah, though it's difficult to say when. We do know that there could be devastating consequences for the urban landscape. Tuesday, the state is sponsoring an earthquake drill called "The Great Utah ShakeOut," so we're taking the opportunity to rebroadcast our conversation about earthquakes and what one would mean for the Wasatch Front.
