Crescent City Revisted: A Comparison of Public Warning Procedures Used in 1964 and 1965 Emergencies
Anderson, William A.
Disaster Research Center
This report considers the response of public officials in Crescent City to the seismic wave threat following the February 3, Alaska earthquake. This particular city was chosen for study from among several threatened Pacific Coast communities because the DRC had previously made a similar study there, and it was felt that a second study would afford an unusual opportunity to make some comparative observations.
