They equally had death ratios on extreme magnitudes. By the notion of this we can see that science has a long way to go before ever reaching a level of superiority to prevent such magnitude of causalities. Its unfortunate that we are unable to predict such catastrophic events. 8) As of today we are yet able to predict earthquakes but are able to detect rumbles under the earths dirt with seismic graphs. WE can also use what is called triangulation to see or pinpoint where an earthquake has originated based on the seismic activity recorded on seismogram. 9)...
