Earthquake closer to home
When we see on the news that 800 people die in an eartquake in Japan we say to ourselves wow! and then we turn the page to see who one the Dodger game. The truth is that something like this could be ready to happen a lot closer to home. An Earthquake of a magnitude around 6.7 is estimated to hit southern Califonria within the next decade. If it does, it could cause 18,000 deaths and $250 billion in damages. I just hope that people do what is needed to cause the least amount of destruction. If and when it happens I hope we all don't just turn the page.
