U.S. citizen also like to live dangerously

The likelihood that the U.S. will see a catastrophic earthquake within the next 30 years is very high – and it’s not just the West Coast that’s at risk, experts say. Seismologists have long warned that the U.S. is „overdue“ for an earthquake, because a catastrophic one has not occurred in the U.S. since about 1989, when the Loma Prieta earthquake killed at least 63 people in California, said Robert Yeats, a geology professor at Oregon State University. The most destructive earthquake the U.S. has ever seen was the 7,9-magnitude “Great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906,” which killed an estimated 3,000 people, according to the agency. Particularly vulnerable regions are: California, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana and Arkansas and Alaska.
