15 Years of Earthquakes

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends with my day job on Brooklyn Nine Nine and coming home at night and developing a project. It’s proven to be a tough and an extremely rewarding past year. But left in the background has been this writing project. I started it after walking away from the wake of Hurricane Katrina and felt too many of my friends and colleagues in Los Angeles aren’t prepared for a natural disaster right here at home. I felt the need to push them to get a 72 hour bag and get supplies for their homes.

It’s been a while since we’ve had any significant event here in SoCal so it hasn’t been on many peoples minds. This morning I found this video issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. It compiles 15 years of earthquakes worldwide and shows them in mere minutes. It’s worth a look and as I watched I noticed two things: you can really see the borders of the tectonic plates and the absolute absence of any major shaking in the SoCal area. This is what still alarms me, because it really means we are over due.
