If everyone would pay attention to this exercise, it would be very nice. I wish it could be covered on TV and the Internet with hopefully pictures gotten from somewhere of actual groud movement waves of the 7.0 quake gleaned from somewhere.
7.0 quake actual observations even at 60 to 90 miles of epicenter are very interesting, even when the epicenter is 30 miles deep.

Can anyone imagine everyone standing up to have to lift each foot up and put it down to stay upright with one foot waves coming through the ground? That's about what you may have to do. The best is to have it happen in full sunlight on a sunshiny day while you are outside. It is amazing to be able to see into the ground on each high wave and see all of the grass roots and even earthworms, as the earth flies apart. Imagine every brick in every house flying apart one foot and going back together again. -Do you think they could do it? This preparation should prepare you for it!

All should pay special attention to this preparedness expose, I would hope, but I doubt they will. -Actually I wish that they could somehow experience the effects of such a quake without getting hurt - then they would pay much more attention! All Architects would build buildings much safer. All Engineers would design things to be built and have them built with much more safety!

Some of the engineered things built along the Wasatch Front scare me -and leave me to leave them with the prayer that the God that keeps gravity and all physical laws in force, will exert His power to prevent them from being destroyed while any living thing is inside during any earthquake! I pray that all along the Wasatch Front and everywhere that any earthquake equal to or greater than this magnitude will escape destruction. God does what He wants -and numerous places people have been and are dying of neglect of safety.

It is amazing that the ground looks just like it did before the earthqake after the waves get through going through. It is very doubtful that many brick structures could appear the way they did before -afterward.
