My name is Casey and I am a junior in the Geoscience program currently! This class sparked my interest because of how many different types of disasters I have been in the proximity of! I grew up in Missouri in the midst of ‘Tornado Alley’ and also went to high school up in Barrow where we commonly experienced harsh weather and frequent flooding. As a result, it will be easy to find passion in this subject. I am really excited to learn about earthquakes, as I have experienced quite a few yet only know an extremely basic understanding of that type of event. I have never really experienced a severe natural disaster, but have been in close proximity of some. Throughout my childhood we had plenty of tornado warnings, but I was never closer than 4-5 minutes away from the tornado at any given time.
I look forward to learning with you all! Have a great weekend!
