EXHIBITS
Earthquake House
"Drop, cover, and hold on" in OMSI's newly renovated Earthquake House, where you can experience simulations of two earthquakes that happened in the Pacific Northwest—one a magnitude 5.6 and the other a 6.8! Find out how likely damage from natural disasters is to occur in your neighborhood using the new Natural Hazards in Portland computer kiosk. Print out and take home hazard information about your neighborhood and tips on preparing for such events.
