PORTLAND, Ore. – If “the big one” hit today, Oregon would not be prepared.

That’s according to a state auditor’s report released Thursday, looking at the Office of Emergency Management’s (OEM) work with state and local governments on preparing for a major earthquake or tsunami.

The audit was released just days after a large earthquake struck the Gulf of Alaska, putting coastal residents on "tsunami watch."

This week also marks the 318th anniversary of the last Cascadia Quake, measured at 9.0 magnitude. Officials said there's a 40 percent chance that an earthquake with an even higher magnitude along the Cascadia Subduction Zone will occur in the next 50 years.

Such a quake would cause numerous deaths, threaten infrastructure, and cost potentially billions of dollars.

The Secretary of State’s Audits Division said Oregon must do more to prepare for such a catastrophic event.
