The Great S Californian Shake Out!

Southern Californian Shake Out

Southern Californian Shake Out

On July 29th 2008, S California was shaken an earthquake measuring 5.4 on the richter scale. Lying on the San Andreas fault the area is prone to earthquakes and it is only a matter of time before the area is struck by an earthquake of much higher magnitude, as it has been in the past! The Great South Californian Shake Out is a project based on a scenario of a potential magnitude 7.8 earthquake on the South San Andreas fault. A group of scientists and engineers led by the USGS are studying the potential effects of such an earthquake in detail. Estimates suggested that an earthquake of this magnitude would cause severe damage in the area and predictions estimate up to 2,000 deaths and 50,000 injuries could result from such an event. The aim of the project is to look at preparedness and what can be done to minimise the impact of such a disaster by planning and preparing for the inevitable. At 10am on November 13th, millions of South Californians are therefore taking part in an earthquake preparedness event based on just such a scenario with the slogan “Drop, Cover and Hold”. You can find out more about the event on the website, which also includes some excellent resources on what to do in the event of an earthquake, including videos, articles and other resources. An excellent resource for all those of you studying earthquakes and earthquake preparedness!

Thanks to virtual colleage B Lang for pointing this out!
