An earthquake is a serious manner in which no one should take lightly. This earthquake was notable for its incongruity: it was one of the most powerful to hit New York City in decades, and yet it caused little damage. The likelihood of an earthquake in the New York metropolitan area has been assessed as ‘‘moderate’’ (Tantala, 2008, p. 812). However, New York City has experienced already three earthquakes and what are going to be the odds for another earthquake happening soon.
The text asserts that there were no sweeping fires to blame, only the earthquake. This event led to the first major legislative initiative in California to recognize seismic issues: the Field Act of 1933. Steinberg contends that although this was a step in the right direction, seismic enlightenment was still difficult. The author notes that regardless of awareness, many built in areas vulnerable to harmful seismic activity (i.e. near fault lines). The author also states that California is not the only area prone to earthquakes and that typically the poor suffer more from these events wherever they happen.
In preparation for the oncoming hurricane, the government created online websites with plans of what preparations should be made by people who were being evacuated or wanted to stay put. These plans include basic things such as a large supply of both food and water and having all important documents and
Informative Speech Outline Speaker’s Name: Luz Singh Speech Topic: Safety; Before, During and After an Earthquake General Purpose: To Inform Central Idea (Main Goal): Help the audience prepare for a massive earthquake. A. Introduction Attention Grabber: I would like to begin by recalling the earthquake of a magnitude of 7.1 in the Ritcher Scale, that struck the center of Mexico this past 19th of September. (Transition):
I would first tell everybody that are in buildings to put anything that is a flying hazard in a secure place like a low shelf. Then I would tell them to secure anything that is electronic like computers, microwaves, or TVs and wrap them with heavy straps because they are heavy objects. I would also tell them to secure things overhead like big hanging lights and other heavy hanging objects. And store any breakable items like glass, bottled foods, and low cabinets with secure latches. And if they have enough time, I would tell them to secure every big piece of furniture and nail them to the walls or put heavy objects on them.
However, some strides are being made to better prepare for earthquakes and tsunamis. As of this year, the Pacific Northwest’s warning system for earthquakes is getting its first public test. The Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) was introduced during a workshop in February as a potential emergency planning and response system. Now it is going to be introduced to the public in preparations for any upcoming earthquakes. Similar systems are used around the globe and been proven to be extremely effective.
The report also revealed the reason behind earthquake reoccurrence in the areas. The 1906 earthquake and the Lawson report indicated the importance of accurate, widespread and repeated observation of earthquakes and the faults on which the occur. This report led to understanding of earthquakes in the region. In addition, this report led to understanding of when the San Andreas is expected to experience another earthquake.
As stated in the article “When Will the Big One Strike California?,” by Francis Weaver of The Week, California contains 300 fault lines and has 37,000 tremors a year making it one of the most seismically active parts of the world. However, these little known facts make it at risk of having a possible catastrophe if say, the San Andreas fault were to shift and produce a major earthquake. Seismologists have warned with urgency and confidence that “The Big One” is near and that is should not be overlooked. Knowing how unusual it is for fault lines to remain inactive for such long periods of time gives me the notion to take what the seismologist say as truth. The Big One is more than a concern, it is an anticipated event.
1. Perception categories that significantly influenced walking frequency were landuse, and aesthetics and amenities. The safety, directness and continuity perception categories were not significant but had weak to moderate associations with land use and aesthetics perception. This implies improving perception of one category is bound to improve or negatively impact the perception of a correlated category. For example landuse perception was correlated with directness perception - which is intuitive, given that directness measured quick and easy access to land uses.
In the period of 15 months after the earthquake in a careful analysis that compared the Hayward fault and that of 1906 earthquake; displays that there were horizontal to the fault in San Andreas. The report showed that the coseismic horizontal displacements are parallel to the fault of San Andreas with opposite sides of the fault that moved in opposite directions observed in the lateral offsets. The geologist Thatcher analyzed the information from the surveying records of the Commission and refined the distribution of the slip. The main principles that drive the knowledge and understanding of the 1906 earthquake come from the seismic hazard assessment principles.
Conclusion The largest earthquake ever recorded on the rector scale is the Great Chilean Earthquake. At some time in the past as some point there could have been a larger earthquake, however the technology did not exist, it would not have been recorded. With the Great Chilean Earthquake there devastating effects of landscape, loss of building and home and the disastrous amount of people that lost their life. Had the technology been available in the 1960’s, the death toll would have been significant reduced and potentially they could have predicted this disastrous

Chile is used to numerous earthquakes, preparedness measures and strict building construction rules for new buildings have demonstrate the effectiveness of these rules. Chile 2010 earthquake caused Chile to face some problems in other such as food scarcity, disorder and chaos in cities and a prison escape. Chile’s preparation for the event kept the death toll low. Analyst reported that the Chilean government as well as the local people were prepared.
1. Describe the study design (is it correlational, experimental, survey research, etc.). The study is Level 3, experimental. The participants are within subject design experiences because since the subjects were divided into two groups by gender.
