Our recent release of a report estimating the potential property damage in the Puyallup Valley from a lahar (mudflow) generated on westside of Mount Rainier received wide media coverage. The coverage may help remind east Pierce County residents and the rest of us of the dangers we face in this region of volcanoes, earthquakes and other natural hazards.
An important piece of the awareness raising effort is a news story on Pierce County TV, which reaches thousands of cable tv subscribers in the county. The television report also can be seen on PCTVs YouTube site.
Additional media reports included:
- KPLU: When Rainier blows, volcanic mudflow could cost us $6 billion
- Seattle Times / AP: Report: Some Rainier lahar losses could reach $6b (Story also appeared on CBS News, Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce, Wenatchee World)
