Having lived in places that get high winds with hurricanes and typhoons and combine that with earthquakes in the typhoon areas at the same time, we live in a pretty good area with sometimes high winds. Thank goodness for weather instrumentation and trained people that know how to forecast the weather for us. The earthquake part is a similar forecasting process but not as precise. We lived in the eastern part of Washington state when Mount Saint Helens blew in May 1980 when it went from a bright sunny morning to a dark as night with sand ash falling in minutes. We are reminded periodically that we may know something but there is a larger and mightier power that should make us more thoughtful of others and not just ourselves.
