Seaplane operators prepare for disaster on Lake Washington

Experts say it’s only a matter of time until a big earthquake will hit our area.

That’s why some volunteer seaplane pilots in Washington took to the skies in a very important drill Saturday in Kenmore.

Volunteers gathered on Lake Washington to practice bringing supplies, providing aid to wounded people and airlifting them to safety in the event of a big earthquake and a possible tsunami.

Saturday’s drill was an all day event involving more than 10 local organizations including the Washington Seaplane Association and the emergency volunteer air corps.
