I am shocked too. It would make me even question having a career in that field!
TLLK - I just moved to CA a little over 2 years ago... and my first tremor had me trying to crawl under the bed
I forgot what to do in my moment of Panic (once I realized that the person next door running a vacuum into the wall was not responsible for the room shaking - I know, my mind was all over the place!) and resorted back to my old tornado drills. Earthquakes freak me out. I dread feeling something bigger than a tremor.
I'm really sad to hear that people are still homeless over this event in Italy 3 years later. I can see how the govt would be eager to point fingers when there's no one to blame but themselves. If only there was a medical cure for Denial.
Speaking of Italian court systems, did any of you keep up with the Amanda Knox case?
