Seattle's Office of Emergency Management and Seattle Parks and Recreation host the City's first ever "Big Shaker" Earthquake Event at Westlake Park. The "Big Shaker" is a 22-foot-long, 6,500-pound earthquake simulator that gives participants the opportunity to experience the shaking of a simulated 8.0 earthquake. "Seattle has experienced major earthquakes in the past, and we know we will experience them in the future," said Mayor Ed Murray. "It is important that we are all aware of the risk and take steps now to prepare."
