Happy Birthday, Earthquake!

Posted by on April 10 at 19:39 PM

The anniversary of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake is coming up, and this article in the New York Times is a harrowing depiction of what happened, along with some post-hoc scientific analysis.

I want to die in an earthquake (or some other suitably historical event), but I’m still chilled by morbid earthquake spectacles, especially this Library of Congress site, which has a film made in the immediate aftermath of the quake.

Scared yet? Here’s King County’s comforting (ha!) predictions and advice regarding earthquakes in the Seattle area.

Speaking of quakes, where's the big one that's going to bring down the viaduct--you know the one that was used to 'scare' people into voting for I-912?

"It hasn't happened yet, therefore it can't happen". Hmm. Not working for me.
