Begining to feel a bit like OZ here...

Post by Craig » Fri Aug 26, 2011 4:52 am

An Earthquake the other day and a hurricane this weekend.

I'm begining to feel like this place is turning into OZ.

I know our quake was a mere temblor (5.9) to those in the real earthquake zones but the tremblor's are a bit unsettling here as nothing is built to earthquake standards here. While it still registered mostly as a non-event, even the small amount of damage that we had indicates that any thing sustained and even close to a 7.0 could wreck major havoc on the east coast of the US.

And now a hurricane heading in. We haven't had a direct hit in the Philly area in well over a hundred years. If the system tracks across souther Jersey it could cause severe problems with any type of sustanined winds.

I expect a busy weekend at the fire house and for the search & rescue teams. Gotta get the dogs life vest out!

If it hits Jersey, there's no telling how much improvement there might be!
Good luck!

Real bummer.

What with all the credit rating problems the mexican construction units might want cash in advance as well in case the ego bubble deflates further :twisted:

IMO as long as no one gets hurt, nature makes the economy stronger in the long run.

For example, worker strikes make the French economy resistant against almost anything else from a performance perspective.

It weakened a lot before arriving and wasn't anything more than a tropical storm so it wasn't anywhere as bad as is could have been.

SAR team had two searches and both were on Friday before Hurricane arrived. Found an elderly lady in the woods that had been msising for 24 hours from a nursing facility. Didn't find another lady that disappeared earlier in the week.

Point of order sir, the quakes are in NZ, not Oz.
I should know I was woken by an after shock of 4.9 at 03:29 today.

What Oz gets but we don't are plagues of locusts :wink:
