Earthquakes: Do they worry you?
Looking around San Francisco, there are many buildings that don’t look like they are earthquake proof. Older, all brick, beautiful but seemingly fragile.
New or old, do you feel safe? Do you worry they might scatter like these magazine cover homes?
Coming from the East Coast, where hurricanes are our worry, earthquakes give me fear. Hurricanes are big, slow, and predictable a day in advance. Earthquakes, not.
Running through downtown I see all these tall buildings and wonder – might the “Big One” come when I am here?
So I wonder, I worry, I don’t feel safe inside big buildings, new or old. Am I the only one?
