Não concordo Rogério,;) pq a evacuação foi mandatória e não obrigatória, todos viamos que ia atingir NW e, além disso tinham imensos planos só que infelizmente não foi no Texas, pq senão a preparação era muito mais eficaz:disgust:
Foi desleixado devido ao tipo de comunidade afectada e pq não queriam gastar recursos fiando-se na probabilidade, pelo que concordo com o Alex foi mais uma reacção do que uma prevenção além disso a pressão foi muita no que se concerne à muita especulação imobiliária no "aftermath"....

Sim, concordo que deveria ser uma obrigação a evacuação e não apenas uma recomendação... Esperemos é que sirva de exemplo para situações idênticas; que não se substime o poder da Natureza...

Mais um bom artigo da BBC, que acho bem realista e nada alarmista. A verdade é que o clima está em mudança radical e estamos a vivê-lo a cada dia... Vamos ver para que lado pende :unsure:, que vai ser difícil para todos nós isso certamente que sim. Toda a mudança tem um preço e exige uma adaptação e esforço, vamos ver se conseguimos... :shocking:

THE BIGGEST EARTHQUAKE EVER
The sun is freaking out: its causes and effects
...
A 500% increase in Earth's volcanic activity between 1875 and 1993.
...

But here's the why of the when:

Earth Perihelion (Closest point of Earth's orbit to Sun)
January 3 2007 20h universal time

the first article to understand the effect of the sun and the moon orbit's on earthquake occurence and strengh.

http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/05/0523_050523_moonquake_2.html
snip
The Earth and moon are closest together at perigee once a month. The Earth and sun are closest together at perihelion once a year. Perihelion currently occurs in early January. Maximum gravitation force occurs when a syzygy and perigee occur on the same day as perihelion

second one

http://www.direct.ca/trinity/tidalquake/index.htm

Now even with the two 7+ eq in taiwan there's still missing 5 earthquakes greater than 7 to reach the yearly average of 17.

But let us not consider these as a earthquake of 7.0 is 1000 times stronger (energy release) than a 9.0 earthquake.

*biggest EQ occuring after the first one in time

The second biggest earthquake ever recorded, the 9.1 event of december 26th of 2004, has been followed by the seventh of its kind, the 8.6 event of march 28th of 2005. These extremly powerfull events have occur in a incredibly short period of 4 month. Now the 8.3 event of november 15th of 2006 prove, without a doubt there's still more energy release for a 2 year period then ever before in recorded history of earthquake. The only exception is for the period of 1960 to 1965 were 4 of the 12 biggest EQ occured.

For the big picture now: the sun (99.86% of the mass in the Solar System) due to the increase in cosmic dust is fueling the 500% increase in Earth's volcanic activity between 1875 and 1993 and even more up to now is nothing more needed to trigger the next glaciation. Its no coincidence the glaciation cycle of about 100 000 years is ending. Plus the biggest volcano of all, Yellowstone, working in synergy with all of the others, have increase their overall activity. With these cycles peaking up there's no reasons why the EQ should go back down.
