Earthquake Safety
29 March, 2015
I am in an old building in San Francisco. There is more detail but I can't quite remember it. The building starts to sway and it is clear that a moderately powerful earthquake is underway. Then I notice that the building is traveling at some speed down the road, on a kind of giant rail. I learn that this system was put into place in order to convert the shaking motion of an earthquake into forward motion, thereby cancelling out the potentially damaging vibrations. My building, along with a bunch of other ones, end up in a sort of common open area or plaza. Everything is fine.
