|North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice shared some news Wednesday of the plans|
of the Ocean Networks Canada on seismic warning programs
The theme of seismic monitoring gained an interesting approach on Wednesday as North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice, wearing the hat of Parliamentary Secretary for Emergency Preparedness provided an update on some plans from the Ocean Networks Canada organization.
The MLA provided a quote from the Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror writer H.P. Lovecraft to set the scene for her review of the work of the Ocean Networks Canada based out of the University of Victoria, and which is currently engaged in an underwater monitoring program that could add to the province's warning process when it comes to earthquakes and tsunami awareness.
Ms. Rice outlined how the province, through Emergency Management BC will be providing for a five million dollar investment into a new system that could soon serve as an earthquake early warning system
