Might I first inform everyone !!!! that since this is a matter of individual posts and members
are most likely to express opinions and facts .I urge readers and guests to take into consideration that not every post is based on fact .  In fact , readers must take the responsible measures when reading to inform themselves when a real life situation does occur it pays to be safe than sorry.


Earthquakes and other natural disasters are devastating and unpredictable , expecialy Earthquakes. 2 QUESTIONS I ASK FOR AND FROM MEMBERS.
Heres my propossal......as well as two good reasons for this thread.
_____________________________________________________________

1} ideas for future safety if at all possible , given the situation for each individual at the time.
2} Interesting and informative

Is this limited to earthquakes?   If so, I do believe earthquakes will become more predictable.

That would mean they become less dangerous. Just like the prediction of a Volcano! Both have warning signs. Yet today we can not predict the exact time, but we can look at the most likely places for them to occur.

If you look at the pacific basin you are looking at a very high probability of this happening.  Could the pacific shelf fall apart? sure it could, in our lifetime well a good chance their as well.   If a major earthquake was to happen, on either the western or eastern seaboard, both sides would feel the effect.

The fairly recent San fran earth quake was bad enough, but minor to what may lay waiting to slip. The San Andrias fault( sorry bad spelling)  has a fault line from Alaska to Mexico. That is a huge danger, concidering that it moves on a dailey basis.  

The most protected from this are inland cities, so come on to Calagary and have no worries, buy a beach front property in Califonia or Vancouver and take your chances.

Since so many members probably have not lived in areas where earthquakes are common, I supposed that whatever type of disater natural that is, can be posted.
Sure.

1} place not to be=  The London eye {even though earthquakes are not that common there, I wouldnt want to be on that thing for any disaster.
2} the best place to be = in a open torain

The best place to be during earthquake is in the air, such as in the plane. You won't feel a thing. If you're not so lucky, then the second best place to be is somewhere where nothing heavy can fall on you. If that's not the case either, then stand in the doorway (I heard that they are "reinforced" ("reinforced" means more "sturdy" ("sturdy" means strongly built))).

I'm not sure how predictable earthquakes will become; other than the geographic locations where they "occur" ("occur" means to happen), which we know already. The problem with earthquakes is that once they happen, it only takes a couple of seconds for them to reach the ground where the buildings are located. Knowing that something will happen in a couple of seconds won't give you enough time for preparation or a drive to the desert, where nothing falls on you, except vulture droppings when they're circling above your head.  original.gif  

I also don't see how we can know the exact place and time that an earthquake will occur, at least not with current technology. Although, we could inject water into the ground thus triggering earthquakes intentionally after the necessary evacuations. However, that would involve many financial expenditures and difficulties with population evacuation.

I'm hoping that in the future all buildings would be designed to withstand the most intense earthquakes and that earthquakes would not cause any casualties and that earthquakes will become a harmless nuisance than a natural disaster that causes many deaths. Until then, remember to run for the doorways or open spaces. Or in my case, after earthquake is over, running for the nearest bathroom or for a new pair of underwear.  original.gif

I think living on a coastline with the earthquake happening out in the ocean is the worse case scenerio.  What the quake itself didn't destroy, the incomming tsunami would.  The people living around the rim of the Indian Ocean found this out first hand.  The west coast of the U.S. and Canada are in immediate danger of this same scenerio right now.  I can't even imagine how many deaths and damage a major earthquake and tsunami could cause in that area.  The only safety I could see in this case would be to try and get to higher ground if possible.

I believe earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are becoming more predictable. However I'm concerned that we won't be able to find a way to predict them early enough to effect an evacuation if a heavily populated area comes under threat.

As far as the worst place to be, well, being in the UK (and generally around London) I would hate to be on the underground when an earthquake happened.

As far as the safest place. On a luxury yacht in the middle of the ocean. Planes, when they run out of fuel have a distressing tendency to crash. An earthquake may render safe landing sites unsafe within the vicinity of how much fuel the plane has left. On a yacht you can drift and fish!

Hey, I'm routing for a catastrophic flood. Global warming, rather manmade or not, is taking a toll. Eventually, in another thousand years or so, I'll have ocean front property, just like I did ten thousand years ago.

By the way, avoid the rush. Pay for your beach front resort hotel room now. $500 a night in the posh "Che`Umbarger"!

1} Worst Place to be  =  A crowd , most likely they will panic and if not trampled by debri the crown will do a fine job tredding on you in the mist of the mast hysteria.


What do you do then,...= My opinion look for an open trench where the least amount of people are, pretend that you need to be still and even if impulse evades you to want to move with the crowd, dont do it. thats my advice anyway.



2} The Best Place to be =  If in a 2 or more story buliding or house , the top floor is always favorable , why? Well you can ask anyone , if you fall you are falling on to somthing , and nothing is falling on top of you.

What to do if you find your self on ground level floor of any building , house, is to not go up but to go out and find an open trench, or a vast area that is most to be unoccupied by anything tall. Duck and cover


NOTE: if any posts within this topic are not correct and someone spots this , please provide the correct information along with the source. please this is a safety issue and due the the responsible persons involving the website such as myself and consideration twords our webmaster SaRuMaN , it is the respectful and appropiate thing to do.

thank you

The worst place: An abandoned socialist housing estate's ground level where the shelves are full of glass containers with smallpox samples in them, with your little brother's fire ant farm in your hands and the neighbour listening to German language hip-hop on maximum volume. (or in Brussels, even without an earthquake grin2.gif)

The best place is, on the ground is inside a large, open swimming pool.
