Earthquake! Preparing for the Big One : British Columbia
If you live in southwestern British Columbia or the Pacific Northwest, you live in earthquake country. It may not seem that way as recent earthquakes here have been relatively minor. However, every two to eight hundred years, this region has suffered a truly gigantic earthquake. The last one was on January 26,1700 which was equivalent to 9.0 on the Richter scale. The author believes we are due for another one and this guide makes preparing for "the Big One" - or any comparable disaster - as easy and effective as it is ever going to get. This definitive guide is filled with checklists with hands on, effective information. "Graem Castell‚´s research could save your life!" Jon McComb, Host, CKNW Radio.
