Topic #01

Recent Earthquakes


It seems in the past several years there have been an epidemic of major earthquakes, most tragically the destruction of Port-au-Prince in Haiti. Earthquakes are measured on the Richter Scale, a logarithmic device for determining shock intensity. So a 7.0 is ten times more violent than a 6.0 and a hundred times more violent than a 5.0. It is theoretical that the 7.1 New Zealand quake could have caused catastrophic consequences if the epicenter was near San Francisco.
