We cannot prevent earthquakes, which are a natural consequence of the relative motions of tectonic plates, which make up the jigsaw puzzles of Earth's outer shell. But in a world in which populations are increasing—notably in megacities that are often located in areas of high seismic hazard—we must learn to better mitigate their impact. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=143517 The American Museum of Natural History The American Museum of Natural History
