Have you ever been in an earthquake before? If so, when, where, and what was it like. If you have never been in an earthquake, visit the linked USGS Earthquake website and choose an earthquake that has occurred over the past week. Do some research to figure out the date, location, magnitude, and plate tectonic setting of your earthquake. Please describe any earthquake hazards (see section 12-2) associated with the earthquake. How often do earthquakes occur in your location over the past year? How likely is there to be an earthquake in your location in the coming year? 10 years? Any other interesting facts that you found out about your earthquake. Please APA format to cite any references or resources you used to come to your conclusion. Remember that you are required to have one post and two replies to this discussion board regarding this topic or anything related to this chapter. I have never personally been in or around an earthquake that I could at least feel. It is crazy to think that one earthquake occurs every 11seconds in the world. Its hard to imagine. I decided to do some research

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
