Are we ready if another 8.9 magnitude earthquake attacks again?
It seems we must prepare ourselves, earthquakes in Japan, if not tsunami I thought I wouldn't be so damaging.
No, were not ready. Are buildings need to be redesigned. Tall skyscrapers cannot withstand a 8.9 magnitude! Loss of life will be extensive. New York, sits on a fault. New York needs to prepare! We need to learn about the dangers of building nuclear power plants, in earthquake prone areas. Were going to learn a great deal from Japan, regarding nuclear reactors and meltdowns.
I remember they built a nuclear power plant at Merom in Indiana, years ago.My former husband expressed great concern regarding power plants. He worked there for a short while. The earthquake tremors in Indiana have worsened over the years. The Madrid fault, could result in a devastating earthquake!
It seems that that will be a long ways off, but we'll probably be prepared for it.
