Forces

A reminder to members of City Daily Photo: the theme day for April is School. And to the anonymous spammer infesting numerous blogs with the same hate rant as of late- first, I'm not a boomer. Second, you're a gutless coward. I cheerfully suggest that you drop dead.

The destructive power of earthquakes comes clearly across with vivid pictures of the aftermath of these movements of the earth.


Mineral development is also examined, with a wealth of varieties.

  3. Good exhibition though I find it strange that we get the off earth tremor here in the UK, never felt one myself theough

  4. Further to Billy's comment the biggest earthquake to hit the UK was about 4.6 on the Richter scale and affected villages near Colchester in 1884. Around 1,250 buildings were damaged and many made homeless. There is some uncertainty about how many (if any) were killed. So it can happen here.

  7. I can't remember the exact year, but it was either 1962 or 1963, and I was in Agadir, Morocco right after the earthquake there, and I can tell you the aftermath is something you can barely imagine.

  10. Another frightening earth defect William, and we certainly aren't helping with excessive mining!

  11. I've never experienced an earthquake .Putting rocks and gems with an earthquake is a good link.

  12. We are right in "Earthquake Alley" and expect the big one "soon." I get that ugly spammer comment too.

  16. I forget that Canada has its own earthquake issue. Wow.

  17. I recently watched a rerun of the video about the earthquakes and tsunami near Fukushima Japan...with some scientific discussion of what was known, and what they have learned.

  18. @Grace: that's true.

    @Red: I have once.

    @DJan: I've had it a couple of times in recent days, and have seen the same copy and paste comment elsewhere.

    @Tom: or at least not often.

    @Karl: each day brings some.

    @Gattina: it hasn't gotten there yet.

    @Jeanie: especially on the Pacific coast.

  19. Earthquakes are scary. We were in Oregon when we experienced our first on. In Alaska, we experience a big one back in the 90s, it was so bad that I thought our house would crumble. It only lasted less than a minute. no damage was done but it was nerve racking.

  20. The minerals are beautiful and colourful.

  21. Even little earthquakes here in Ohio cause damage, mostly minor structural stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Barbara: that's the sort of stuff that fascinates me.

    @Bill: it would be.

    @Revrunner: indeed.

    @Marleen: they are.

    @Joanne: it can happen.

  23. The hate of that spammer is disgusting. What a sad little person!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I've been through enough earthquakes in my time, as did relatives in the 1906 earthquake in San Francisco. Feeling sad today for the people in Croatia, too.

  25. Our world is full of dangers ... but it is still such a beautiful place. The Museum does a good job of explaining things so that even someone with a decidedly unscientific mind can understand a little about earthquakes. (At least while I’m studying the exhibits)j.
