Welcome to Kala Point
Internationally renowned geologist Susan Kieffer will speak to Kala Point residents on “The Dynamics of Disaster” on Thursday, Feb. 21st, at 4:00 p.m. in the Clubhouse.
Based on her book of the same title, Dr. Kieffer will describe the underlying geology that causes earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. She’ll show why such natural disasters are more common than we realize, and how their impact on us will increase as our growing population crowds us into ever more vulnerable areas. And she’ll outline how we might better prepare for, and in some cases prevent, future disasters.
Dr. Kieffer is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and a MacArthur Foundation Fellow. Don’t miss this enlightening presentation, sponsored by the Kala Point Emergency Preparedness Committee.
