Since 1998 I only felt one ( barely), the same one that caused cracks in Washington monument. So earthquakes here in northeast is not really a problem

good to know..


OT

Here in PH we have like each year.. twice even..but only lasts for a second or two.. feels like you're being pushed and you got confused.. sometimes you can't even feel them..and you check your facebook and everyone posted about it.. ..those that are beyond three seconds are usually M5 to M7 and Intensity 4 to 6..typhoons, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.. what more can we ask for..

Lagre storm systems like Sandy would be a bigger threat, but that is incorporated in the design.

They're containment units for dihydrogen monoxide
It's extremely dangerous, anyone exposed to it eventually dies. Entire cities had to be evacuated because of a massive spill

I wonder what they've done with the large "topping out" flags after they removed them. Did they get them custom made? Lease them from a specific flag supplier?
