Title

How big is your disaster?

Summary

This post would encourage readers to take a deep look into the types of disasters most likely to strike where they live and to make sure they've correctly assessed the disaster's impact. The New Madrid Seismic Zone is a good example. While west coast earthquakes tend to be rather localized (even if they cause severe damage), a New Madrid quake, due to ground composition, would cause catastrophic damage from Memphis to St. Louis. There would be no quick emergency response. Would readers be ready?
