Please respond to one of the two discussion prompts below:
Have you, or someone you know, personally experienced an earthquake? Describe the moment just before the earthquake. What was the earthquake itself like? How was your life and the local population affected?
Imagine that your city was hit by a major earthquake. What kind of damage would you see? For example, are there dams upstream of your city that might burst and release floodwaters? Are there any major pipelines that would be vulnerable, leading to fires? Are you near a coast? Is there a threat of tsunamis? Do you think your city’s building codes are enough to withstand a major earthquake?
Please include the name of the person or question to which you are replying in the subject line. For example, “Tom’s response to Susan’s comment.”
