Black History Month: Black and Tan Hall & Clubs
The term “black and tan” originated in Harlem to identify clubs where patrons of all races were welcome despite segregation laws. The original Black and Tan Club in Seattle has an extensive history. The popular music venue at 12th and Jackson is said to have opened in the early 1920s and despite name and ownership changes over the years, operated for nearly five decades.

02/18/2021 USGS: Earthquake Alert
An Earthquake Early Warning System for the West Coast of the United States
Washington Emergency Management
Alert & Warning Notifications
Opt In to ShakeAlert https://mil.wa.gov/alerts
The likelihood of an earthquake under magnitude 8.0 — smaller, but still potentially devastating to the region — in the next 50 years is around 40%.
Starting March 11, 2021, ShakeAlert®-powered earthquake early warning alerts will be available for delivery directly to wireless devices in Oregon. In May 2021, Washington state will follow suit and complete the ShakeAlert public alerting rollout across the entire West Coast. California enabled ShakeAlert-powered alerts in October 2019.
New 'ShakeAlert' earthquake warning system to launch in Washington in May; drill next week
The system, created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Advanced National Seismic System (ADNN), is a network of sensors that can detect seismic shaking and provide information such as the magnitude, location and expected duration to partners who will then distribute it via cell phone, radio, internet and television alert to residents.
While residents drop, hold and cover during the shaking, the alerts can also initiate other protective actions such as stopping trains to prevent derailments, halting surgeries at hospitals and shutting off water valves to protect infrastructures.
Seismologists with the USGS said there is a 15% chance the Evergreen State will be rattled by a magnitude 9.0 earthquake within the next 50 years.
