Re: [Geology2] Construction errors responsibe for the collapse of the Christchurch CTV building (killing 115 people)

The Dyersburg Bridge has a 50/50 chance of surviving. The Memphis I40 bridge should make it, but the Memphis I55 bridge will be at the bottom of the river. I imagine that Mud Island at Memphis will be a memory, too. :-)

Interesting, and here I thought the floods and tornadoes of West Tennessee where the most exciting things that affected the natives around there.

BTW those are some long bridges across the Mississippi River that you expect to be still standing after a quake.

I am very familiar with the structures in Memphis, TN and St. Louis, MO. Both cities have their oldest buildings nearest the river, including a dilapidated bridge in the latter city. How would I rate their preparation for the big one in these two cities: 0. A big fat zero.
