The results of a drill conducted at FEMA's base at Mount Weather revealed flaws in the evacuation plan for communities near Mount Rainier (Orting, Fife, Puyallup). The volcano eruption could trigger a mudflow (lahar) that could obliterate the river valley communities. Another local problem is the constant grow of population in the area (average of 38% over the last years) that can pose serious problems of evacuation in case of a natural disaster. As a result of the drill new evacuation plans and procedures are developed to ensure a maximum rate of survival for the inhabitants.
