U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici is requesting $902,500 in funding for a landslide mitigation project in Astoria that would help protect a neighborhood from common winter flooding or the Big One — the Cascadia Subduction Earthquake that would impact a 600-mile fault located 70-100 miles off the West Coast of North America. “I was looking for projects that would benefit communities, create jobs, keep people safe,” said Bonamici. “As the representative of the north coast, it’s important to prepare for issues like landslides. We’ve already seen this in Astoria this winter.”
