Is Florida Ready?
From the paper:
“What would happen if Florida were to be hit by a devastating earthquake? This paper suggests a possible emergency response to such an event. While Florida is as prepared as a state can be (having had a fair amount of practice recently) in responding to hurricanes, it has (of course) relatively little practice in responding to earthquakes. However, some fault lines do lie under the Atlantic, of course, and so Florida is subject to potential earthquakes. Fortunately, while the citizenry here is unfamiliar with earthquakes, many of the basic disaster-preparedness elements that allow us to cope with hurricanes can also be called into play for any other type of natural disaster.”
