A chilling look at the massive earthquakes that could strike America at any moment Far beneath the eartha€™s surface, great tectonic plates grind against one another with incredible pressure that musta€”inevitablya€”be released. Earthquakes manifest with little warning, upending buildings, shattering infrastructure, and unleashing devastating tsunamis. In this remarkable survey of the history of seismology and the extraordinary seismic events that have occurred in the United States, Mexico, China, and other locales, author John J. Nance traces the discoveries of the scientists who have dedicated their lives to understanding and predicting one of the deadliest threats known to mankind. From the Pacific Northwest to the Midwest and the East Coast, most of the United Statesa€”not just Californiaa€”is in danger of a massive quake, and few citizens are adequately prepared. Through riveting firsthand interviews with earthquake survivors, and with the same command of technical detail and gripping style that he brings to his New York Timesa€“bestselling thrillers, Nance demonstrates the need for readinessa€”because the next big quake could happen tomorrow.and forth, nails squealing in wooden members as she turned to see her precious possessionsa€”little glass figurines and ... her attention to comforting Mrs. Kruger, who had emerged into the alley in tears, her homea#39;s interior equally in ruins.
