Oklahoma Earthquake, This morning a 5.1 earthquake shook central Oklahoma. True, Oklahoma. Only two injuries were reported, one from a man who fell from a ladder during the quake that was felt all the way to Wichita, Kansas.
As someone who grew up in Oklahoma and just left New York after a freak hailstorm covered in slush Brooklyn, where I also saw the damage from the tornado that swept through Brooklyn and Queens month last – I wonder if the next hurricane will be dangerously close to my new home in Los Angeles. This mix-up weather is a little too weird and close for comfort.
If I was some kind of conspiracy of gal, I think we all live in an episode of The X-Files. But a more scientifically sound is climate change.
Whether you believe it or not, climate change is the provision of unusual weather conditions worldwide. The greatest dangers are events happening in areas that are not prepared for such events. You do not watch The Day After Tomorrow to learn a Category 5 hurricane would devastate the west coast, or an earthquake the worst collapse in Oklahoma these brick ranch houses (designed to withstand more tornadoes).
Freak weather events are much more devastating for those unprepared. Increasingly, it does not matter where you live – on the San Andreas Fault or tornado alley – a natural disaster can switch your region if you have sealed the hatches, bolt your foundation, or be found in the cellar. Maybe we should do all the above to survive in this new, unpredictable weather.
