A Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On

We had quite shake last weekend here in San Diego and, with more earthquakes in Northern California and Indonesia, a lot of us are feeling pretty shaky ourselves.

Knowledge is not only power, it’s pretty darn reassuring too. And we have plenty of earthquake-related programs to help you understand what’s behind the quakes, how engineers are making our buildings safer, and what you can do to be better prepared.

I don’t know about you, but Sunday’s earthquake made me realize how unprepared I actually am. So I’ll be tuning in the last week in April when UCTV debuts a new program, Home Preparedness in Earthquake Country with UCSF Professor Matthew Springer. In the meantime, read this interview with Dr. Springer and check out his earthquake preparedness website too.

Be safe everyone!
