One of the most unfortunate things I hear about here in Chicago is the earthquakes. The most recent happened at around 4.40am today, so if you live in the city, you may have already started to wonder what is going on.
That’s not a bad thing. When an earthquake happens, most people will head to the nearest grocery store, which is probably the best place to be for an earthquake because they tend to have the most food and fresh water. In the US, we have a lot of earthquake fault lines so we’re constantly close to these earthquakes. But it’s important to remember that there are always natural disasters happening in the world, and it’s vital to stay informed.
That doesn’t mean you should just turn your back and leave your house. If you have to, it is not a good idea to go outside and not take any precautions. Earthquakes can be dangerous because so many people have been killed by them and you want to avoid the worst of the danger. But if you can, please use the tools that we have available. Just take the precautions that you need before the earthquake strikes.
There is a lot of information out there about earthquakes and how to prepare for them. Our site has a great page that helps you with that. It’s called “How to protect your home from earthquakes”.
To be honest, one of the things that I’m most worried about right now is how we are going to handle this earthquake. And our site has a great guide for that. Its called How to protect your home from earthquakes.
This is the second most common earthquake we’ve had to deal with in the last couple of years – and it’s been over a month since the 7.0 quake on April 19, 2013. The reason for that is that earthquakes are sometimes followed by other large earthquakes on the same fault causing severe damage. So it’s important that people prepare for the very likely event.
The first thing you should do now is make sure your home shelters from the earthquake as soon as you can. This is because earthquakes can actually be very dangerous. If a large earthquake hits your house (the largest one we have experienced) then the ground collapses and the house and all the people inside are destroyed.
This is a dangerous event because the strongest earthquake ever recorded was in Chile. The earthquake that damaged the city of Quilmes in 1994 killed more than 12,000 people. The same earthquake that caused the death of more than 2,000 people in Kerala in 2004 has left over 500 people missing. The next earthquake will be even more destructive. The last time India experienced major earthquakes was in 2004 with the magnitude 6.1 one which destroyed about 5,700 buildings, damaged an estimated 9.
The reason is that the epicenter of the 2012 Delhi earthquake was some 15 miles from the epicenter of the 2004 earthquake. In 2004, the epicenter was only about 30 miles from the epicenter of the 2004 earthquake. If you’re wondering why the Indian media has hyped the 2012 earthquake as a potentially more dangerous earthquake than the 2004 earthquake, then it is because the 2004 earthquake was so large that it was felt as far away as Australia.
The 2012 Delhi earthquake was a 5.7 magnitude earthquake which hit India’s capital city on December 26th. The epicenter was about 15 miles from the epicenter of the 2004 earthquake. It was the largest earthquake to hit India in the last 10 years. The quake was felt throughout the country but it was felt as far away as Australia.
