Durkan on Seattle’s emergency preparedness: “It’s not good news”

This week, we interviewed Seattle mayoral candidate Jenny Durkan for the Washington State Wire Podcast.

We’ll be releasing the full interview next week, but with the recent news about Hurricane Harvey in Houston, we asked her about Seattle’s readiness for a natural disaster.

In her role as a US Attorney, Durkan participated in “table top” exercises to prepare for a natural disaster like an earthquake.

Her thoughts are sobering, particularly during a week when Hurricane Harvey is hitting Houston so hard.  We wanted to tease our full podcast coming next week with this snippet.

Take a listen.
