Help Us Avoid THIS - Vote NO on Initiative 912 (October 27th)

Help Fight Initiative 912: Donate to Washington Defense

For the last couple of months, we've been posting a picture or illustration here every week reminding you of the consequences of passing Initiative 912. Here's this Thursday's Disaster Picture of the Week.

Remember: If we roll back funds to replace critical structures like the Alaskan Way Viaduct and the SR 520 bridge, then we put ourselves at risk for a disaster in which there will be death and destruction.

The image to the left shows a collapsed section of Oakland's former Cypress Street Viaduct.

The elevated freeway, hauntingly similar to the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle, collapsed in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake (Magnitude 7.1, lasted fifteen seconds), causing loss of lives and significant property damage.

Don't let this kind of a disaster happen to us. Put Public Safety First. Vote NO on Initiative 912.
