Hikianalia Wayfinding to the Global Climate Action Summit

ARTICLE / VIDEO. Polynesian voyaging canoe Hikianalia has made landfall in Northern California. After sailing approximately 2,800-miles over 23 days, the 13-person crew arrived in the Half Moon Bay.

The Polynesian Voyaging Society is a non-profit research and educational organization dedicated to the preservation of Polynesian culture, and specifically the traditional boat-building and navigation techniques (wayfinding) of the ancient Polynesians who populated the Pacific islands. Their traditional canoe*, Hokule’a, has traveled the Pacific Ocean and demonstrated wayfinding since the mid 1970’s. In 2012 they built another canoe**, Hikianalia, to further their mission.

7.3 – “The Coast is Flat” ~ Neighborhood Communications Exercise
ARTICLE.  You ready for a BIG EARTHQUAKE?  Find out Saturday, October 27, 2018.  ACTION PLAN  for ~ 7.3 – The Coast is Flat.

This scenario is a 7.3 earthquake occurring along Highway 280, west of San Mateo.  The effects would be severe. Extrapolating from the 1989 Loma Prieta and 2014 Napa quakes effects in the more rural towns of Napa Valley and Santa Cruz, one can estimate on the Coastside several hundred red-tagged buildings, hundreds injured and dozens of fatalities.  

This exercise is focused on answering the question:  

Are you and your neighbors prepared for a disaster?

  • Do you have 1 gallon per person, per day? Do your neighbors?
  • Do  you have any vulnerable neighbors? Do they have a disaster plan?
  • Do you have a pet plan? What if you are over the hill at work?
  • Family communication plan for weekdays and weekends?
