This week the bigger stories are a town in Wyoming had to be evacuated due to a gas explosion and the weather in the Mid West.
There are several posting on the Face Book page.
The most "exciting" news was the anniversary of the birth of Dr. Charles Frances Richter.
Charles Francis Richter (April 26, 1900 – September 30, 1985)
was an American seismologist and physicist.
Richter is most famous as the creator of the Richter magnitude scale which,
until the development of the moment magnitude scale in 1979, quantified the size of earthquakes. Inspired by Kiyoo Wadati's 1928 paper on shallow and deep earthquakes,
Richter first used the scale in 1935 after developing it in collaboration with Beno Gutenberg;
Both worked at Caltech (California Institute of Technology in Pasadena CA).
(On a personal note, my Father went to Caltech and got degrees in Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. Dr. Richter became a family friend.
He was such a fascinating man from whom learned quite a bit and got my interest in Disasters and Disaster Training.)
So what did you do this week to Be Disaster Ready?
Did you get a kit or add to your supplies?
Did you have a Family Disaster Plan meeting?
Did you do a Disaster or Emergency Drill?
Remember, it is not a question of IF something is going to happen, rather WHEN something is going to happen.
