          It’s been more than four months since one of the largest typhoons ever recorded hit the Philippines. Super Typhoon Haiyan wiped away entire towns and left many people without homes, mourning the loss of families and friends lost in the storm.
          Here in Kodiak, where Filipino-Americans make up almost 35 percent of the population, community members were quick to organize fundraisers for victims of the typhoon. As clean up and rebuilding continues in the Philippines, so do those fundraising efforts here in Kodiak. KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs filed this report on an upcoming fundraiser, and how folks can get involved.
           Marc Ignacio, also known as DJ Marc, helped put together the inspirational benefit concert that will feature singer-songwriter Kitchie Nadal. Nadal is already well known in Asia and the Pacific Islands for her music, but has also made a name for herself as a humanitarian. Ignacio said she’s worked with a number of homeless youth and often uses music to inspire them through workshops and outreach.
           Kitchie Nadal will perform for the first time in Kodiak on February 28 at 7 p.m. at the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium. It is an all ages show and tickets are on sale for $35 at Noodles Restaurant and Asian Groceries and Gifts.

Last week a group of folks gathered in Kodiak to learn about emergency preparedness. The two-and-a-half day event brought representatives from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Weather Service and Division of Homeland Security to Kodiak to help train emergency planners, responders, and mayors, among other city and borough staff members. Some of those involved with the training stopped by KMXT's studios and recorded this conversation about emergency preparedness, specifically as it relates to tsunamis.

           While the high school wrestling season wrapped up at the state tournament earlier this month, the Kodiak Kid Wrestling program is in full swing. This Friday dozens of young athletes will take to the mat for a jamboree tournament in the gymnasium at Main Elementary.
           The tournament is the second of three events the club wrestling program puts on. About two weeks ago they hosted a takedown tournament, and next month the final tournament will bring in young wrestlers from the villages to participate.
            KMXT’s Brianna Gibbs recently stopped by a kid wrestling practice and learned more about the program that has been operating in Kodiak for more than three decades.

            Friday's tournament will kick off with the younger kids taking the mat at 6 p.m.and older kids will start matches around 7 p.m.

           Next month marks the 50th anniversary of the 1964 earthquake and tsunami that devastated much of Alaska’s coastline, including Kodiak. In the half century since that fateful Good Friday, communities across the state have been working to make sure they are prepared for similar emergency situations.
           Last week a handful of emergency management and tsunami specialists hosted a two-and-a-half day training in Kodiak and helped prepare local officials for what to do in the event of any emergency, but specifically for tsunamis.
           Cindi Preller is a tsunami program manager for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Weather Service. She said the training was great for community officials that will have decision making or action responsibilities during an emergency event, but stressed the importance of everyone knowing the warning signs of tsunamis and how to react on their own.
           “And the most important one is if you feel an earthquake and the shaking sustains for longer than 20 seconds and you’re next to the water you really do need to evacuate. And that can be tough in a big earthquake that’s still shaking and quite dangerous. But what we’ve learned in the last few years is you really only might have a couple minutes. I mean we used to think you have 20, and now it’s down to two. So 20 seconds is roughly equivalent to a magnitude 7.0, and that’s strong enough to trigger a landslide.”
