On “The Impact” this week: Washington takes part in the nation’s largest-ever disaster drill, “Cascadia Rising.” We talk with Major General Bret Daugherty about what agencies hopes to learn from the scenarios in hopes of being better prepared for a major earthquake and tsunami.  You can see that interview on TVW Wednesday night at 7 and 10 p.m.

While local, state, federal and military agencies team up, they’re also encouraging communities and families to get involved and prepare for a natural disaster. You’re encouraged to map your neighborhood, protect your pets, and your home and businesses.
