Cascadia Rising/Ardent Sentry 16 is an exercise that takes place in the Pacific Northwest and is designed to allow federal, state, tribal and local officials to practice their response to a catastrophic earthquake/tsunami disaster. The exercise scenario is based on a magnitude 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone catastrophic earthquake and resulting tsunami. The exercise gives civilian and military officials at all levels the opportunity to work together to respond and begin the recovery from this major event.
