I was taken to task (in a very nice way) a week or so ago when I
ended a thread on earthquakes (on NORCAL, I think). While I stood by
my decision (since the message content at the time was non-emergency
related), I realized we do have a rootsweb void here in California
regarding earthquakes. So (fool that I am) I've created a new list:
CA-EARTHQUAKE-L (and D).
I envision this list to be SOLELY devoted to California earthquakes
any place, any time. I expect there will be a great deal of list
traffic directly after earthquakes (ie Hector week before last) and
around anniversaries (ie Oct. 17, 1999 - the ten year anniversary of
Loma Prieta). However, we can use it as a forum for earthquakes
preparedness and a repository for earthquake-related URLS.
I would hope that everyone will subscribe even if there is little or
no traffic in the event that there is an earthquake and we still have
access to our computers, we can use the list as a clearinghouse and a
base station. I also am only able to post this to the lists I
subscribe to, so if those of you on other CA lists, please pass the
This list BY NO MEANS replaces local and state emergency response
however it may be a means for the rootsweb community to stay in
contact - especially as we know each other so well already.
I'm very open to the content and management of CA-EARTHQUAKE. I have
no real preconceived vision for the list other than what is listed
above. Although earthquakes happen every where, California is
uniquely conscious of earthquake activity. This is our list. I
expect a certain amount of "chat" and earthquake anecdotes but please
try to stay ontopic and relevant.
Please do not debate the merits of this list these lists but feel
free to either email me privately or subscribe to CA-EARTHQUAKE and
post your thoughts!
