Earthquakes

A handful of quakes have shaken California over the past few weeks, ranging from smaller 4.4-magnitude shakers to a larger (and more recent) 6.5 quake off the Northern coast of the state. Californians have long lived uneasily in the presence of the San Andreas fault, the massive rift that runs the length of the state. But in light of the recent rumblings there and the dreadfully destructive quake in Haiti, many are worrying that the long-feared "Big One" on the West Coast may be just around the corner.

Scientists believe a tremendous earthquake in California is almost inevitable. In 2008, a multi-disciplinary collaboration of scientists and engineers released the Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast (UCERF), which predicts a 99.7 percent likelihood of a 6.7 or larger earthquake in California in the next 30 years.

Other disasters may be in store for Americans as well, notably the so-called "supervolcano" beneath Yellowstone National Park.

Next?

That's why I have a concrete bunker thing under my house. With water. And food. And a generator. Also I'm a long way from the fault. So fu.

I have the Juan de FUCA plate to deal with up here, and a ton of seismicity to handle!

The armaments which thunderstrike the walls
And monarchs tremble in their capitals.
The oak leviathans, whose huge ribs make
Of lord of thee, and arbiter of war;
Alike the Armada's pride, or spoils of Trafalgar.

You're happy that you live in Australia where the Earth doesn't try to kill you but everything else does.

I think you don't know anything about Australia. Cause nothing tries to kill you. Except the odd person but its very rare to have a shocking murder round these here parts.

Basically the only things you should be worried about are: Snakes, Serial Killers and Grannies.

I don't live on any continent. I live on a house submarine. So earthquakes can't affect me. The tsunamis that earthquakes cause affect me.

Visiting this website is filled with nostalgia. Its like going to an old home.

Thank you for all the memories. Never change.
