5 major cities that are going to be destroyed

Jul!a Jul!a
"If you turn on the news and hear that some city is being devastated by its fourth flood in 20 years, or that a village at the foot of some volcano has just been buried under lava, there is a 100 percent chance that someone in the room will ask, Why don't those people just move?

It's a good question, and the answer gives us a nice insight into mankind's absolute refusal to back down from nature, even if it means certain destruction."


I watch entirely too much of the History Channel and the Weather Channel, and actually knew about most of these, although I hadn't heard about Goma yet. I still thought the rest of the article was interesting, even if it does make me want to watch It Could Happen Tomorrow lol.

I think that most people believe that "it won't happen here". It might happen "over there" but not here. I live Colorado, so I know that one day Yellowstone is going to erupt and bury Denver and the surrounding area in ash several feet deep. My odds of surviving it are very slim, as are my odds of out running it. Do I plan on moving somewhere else? No. Why bother. Somewhere else is just something else. There is no place that I know of that is perfectly safe from all possible disasters.
Is Yellowstone due to erupt..... It is past due. Will it erupt? It has in the past, so it should some time in the future. The only real question is when? That is the real question that no one can answer. They monitor the volcano, but so far there aren't enough indicators to make it worth worrying about.
I feel that most people ahve a similar feeling about the areas around them also.
"It could happen, it has happened before, but no one knows when the next time will be, so why worry about it?"

Pretty much my thoughts exactly

New York City is going to be overrun by hipster kids in grandma glasses living off their trust funds, and God will smite it and send it into the deeps of the Atlantic. They forgot to include that...

Even if we want to move, where DO we move to? I cannot think of a place where it's 100% safe from natural disasters.

With all the recent disasters around the globe, I'll sometimes wonder whether the 2012 Apocalypse might be true.

This made me giggle just a little bit.

I lived in San Francisco for a few years and experienced two earthquakes there. They scared the hell out of me, but I would move back in a heartbeat. It's an amazing city. I'm am still "homesick" for it sometimes.

This article made me think of beach houses. Rich people pay all this money for prime waterfront real estate, then have all these problems with mudslides and erosion.

And possible tsunamis.

I was home when the 1989 Loma Prieta hit. I was standing in the middle of the dining room, staring at the swaying chandelier, wondering if I should duck under the dining table or not - silly me!
