A man called, "The Prophet of Doom" tells local community disaster volunteers what they might face someday.  "Of all the disasters that could happen in the Pacific Northwest, the one that scares emergency preparedness people the most is a massive offshore earthquake that ruptures the 700-mile long earthquake fault that sits about 75 miles off our coast.   An event that would be very similar to the event that happened in Japan."  James Roddey is a disaster consultant hired to speak at Thursday’s Disaster Preparedness for Community Responders held in Bend. Roddey says most people think a coastal earthquake wouldn't have much impact in our area. "Power will probably be off. Food and fuel shipments will be disrupted.  Highways across the Cascades will be damaged. I-84 will be closed. So, there’s certainly the possibility that even east of the cascades, communities will be isolated for a long time. " Roddey says its possible large numbers of disaster refugees could end up in Bend and Redmond.
