    Hey TMM, I have to do training for Haz Mat at the CG station, and while doing that, I teach a little about earthquake safety....the problem is, a lot of these guys are soon transferring, so they don't feel they need to fret; So my first question is, "What was considered the 'Great quake' before San Fran 1906?" Charleston, SC in 1886! Same pattern as SF; leveled half the town, then fires burned what was left.
    Then I ask them where were the 3 biggest quakes in the continental US? New Madrid, MO....in 1811-1812, they had hundreds of significant quakes, but 3 +8s. The Coaties start paying attention after I mention these facts.

    Oh yes, we have had 3 tornados in the central valley in the last month, although they didn't kill anyone.

    When that ole New Madrid quake hit the town SUNK and caused the river to flow backward as the town became a lake (Realfoot Lake), true story...



    Now how about LOCUSTS??? Has the LOCUST plague hit the west coast yet??? It's almost deafening outside right now with their noise...

    Personally, I'd call that a "diverse place."

    Supposedly, those New Madrid quakes rang church bells in Boston, but I have recently read that that claim is wrong; I know it shook a much larger area than our west coast quakes; All the alluvial from the mississippi river watershed acts like jello.

    As for locusts, well, we have Cicadas, which come out of the ground in mass every 17 years.....My family was camping at Trinity lake in 1969 and I was a big boy with my own tent....until I came out of the tent the first morning and saw a bunch of bug shells all over the outside of the tent....then I screamed like a little girl......

    Those dang things are so noisy, and you can hear a wave of noise passing thru the forest in wave after wave.
