    Do you think that if the United States has a severe high magnitude earthquake we are ready or..p.

    repared for this? The United States is always going to the rescue to other countries in the aftermath of an earthquake that devastates a country,do you feel that we are prepared as Americans to deal with an earthquake, the aftermath, having enough food and medicine for at least 72 hours,do we know where to go, the large cities with sky high buildings,and so much more such as food and water for a week, are we really prepared and our government never addresses this possibilty that we could have a earthquake and we could at anytime. This would bring this country to "Panic". What would happen?

    Californians may be more prepared for a major Earthquake, than most others, simply because theyhave a history of serious tremors. Their emergency system is better equipped to handle the eventuality and their building codes take earthquakes into account.
    Now, if an earthquake of great magnitude hit the Mid-Atlantic states, say New Jersey, the results could be very very bad. If a large earthquake shook Manhattan, look out!

    Having survived the earthquake in the North East of Japan, the earthquake is the beginning of the problem. It leaves a devastation of other problems in its wake: fire storms in the Kanto earthquake of 1912 and more pertinent and recent, the tsunamis and damage to infrastructures such as nuclear power plants which create a significant impact upon the infrastructure itself. Not forgetting the control of disorder that may arise such as looting.

    In Japan their ingrained discipline and experience of these life shattering blows in the face of severe shortages of fresh food salvaged the possibilty of more damage and disruption. The question is could the Americans act so gracefully or will they rely on their government to solve all problems...
