I just noticed this headline on CNN - in yellow - claiming BREAKING NEWS.....
Why is it that this one is breaking news, but every other 5.0+ earthquake in the last week gets ignored?
I am from So. Calif. originally, so I am used to earthquakes and a 5.8 wouldn't catch my attention much- in California!
Our houses were made of wood, and usually pretty low, all buildings were made to move with earthquakes and relatively new.
But now I live in South France, just on the other side of the border from Italy, and these are scaring me.
Because our home is made of stones, it is three hundred years old, built on the side of a steep slope, with caverns underneath. Nothing here is made
to withstand earthquakes- we are even near a nuclear plant that has only been made to withstand a 4.something.
The more of these we've had coming closer the last few weeks the more scary it is. Everything is relative.
