Under The Worlds Greatest Cities, Deadly Plates

Megacities are something new on the planet. Earthquakes are something very old. The two are a lethal combination, as seen in the recent tragedy in Port-au-Prince, where more than 200,000 people perished a catastrophe that scientists say is certain to be repeated somewhere, and probably soon, with death tolls that once again stagger the mind.

More Homeless Americans Living in Cars and Campers

Tim Barker never thought he’d have to live in his truck. Four months ago, the plumber was in a one-bedroom apartment in California’s San Fernando Valley, with a pool and a Jacuzzi.

Sun, Moon Responsible for Earthquakes?

Tremors that start deep underground are caused by water being controlled by the sun and moon, a new study by UC Berkeley seismologists has found. According to ScienceDaily, the study could pave the way for better understanding of earthquakes. The seismologists studied part of California’s 800-mile San Andreas Fault, which has been responsible for some […]

Quake, Tsunami Potential High On West Coast

Scientists have underestimated the potential for a giant quake and tsunami that could swamp much the U.S. northwest and Canadian west coasts, British and U.S. researchers said on Monday. Geological evidence suggests there have been earthquakes in the past that were even stronger than a magnitude 9.2 quake — the second-biggest ever recorded — which […]

Seattle Earthquake Risk

Seattle’s tallest buildings are at risk of collapse during a rupture of the Cascadia fault zone in the Pacific Northwest, say U.S. seismic experts. The Cascadia subduction zone is likely to produce the strongest shaking experienced from earthquakes in the lower 48 states, said seismic experts from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. While […]

LA Beach Signs Warn of Tsunami Threat

Like many Californians who put down roots in earthquake country, Robin Rudisill knows the “Big One” could strike without warning. Yet from her Venice beachfront duplex, Rudisill worries about a different massive blow from Mother Nature — a tsunami.
