    Potential uses for this map include: (Pre-event uses) Evaluation of options for future extension of utility lifeline systems in Portland in relation to areas of potential soil liquefaction; Prioritization of mitigation measures for system components to reduce vulnerability to potential liquefaction; Evaluation of the population and businesses that are potentially vulnerable to the earthquake hazard in Portland; (Post-event uses) Identification of utility lifelines that are potentially impacted by soil liquefaction; Identification of utilities that are potentially eligible for funds under FEMA’s Public Assistance (PA) program following a declared disaster; and Identification of mitigation opportunities following a damaging earthquake.

    Potential uses for this map include: Identification of population, general building stock and lifelines that would be most at risk from magnitude 7.1 earthquake on Newport-Inglewood Fault; Identification of counties and population centers that would be subjected to PGA > 0.4 (area of greatest expected damage); (Post-event uses) Area of impact from the scenario earthquake; and Rapid needs assessment – identification of population, general building stock, essential facilities and lifelines (utilities and transportation) with at least a moderate probability of major or severe damage and potential loss of functionality.
