Obama said the chances of a U.S. outbreak were extremely low, citing new measures to identify infected travelers and to train doctors and nurses. But the situation is much worse in the hard-hit West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

“People are literally dying in the streets,” Obama said at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “If the outbreak is not stopped now, we could be looking at hundreds of thousands of people affected, with profound economic, political and security implications for all of us.”

President Obama embarked on a two-day U.S. road trip to assess and amplify his government’s response to two unconnected overseas emergencies — the Ebola outbreak in Africa and Islamic terror threat in Iraq and Syria.

Today, Obama announced significant new U.S. efforts to combat the Ebola epidemic, which has moved quickly across the western part of Africa, sending governments scrambling to respond. The plan announced at the Atlanta headquarters of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention includes new military assistance to the region and an increase in trained medical professionals sent to help.

Cascadian Megaquake

Uploaded on Apr 1, 2009

I wanted to upload this series because I’ve had some really nasty “premonitions” about the Cascadia subduction zone. Specifically during the months of June-July 2009.

We need to remember and learn about our local regions. If you live in an earthquake zone, a tsunami region, a flood plain, etc. These are important lessons from nature that many of us have forgotten.
