Hi all, my name is Brandon. I am a senior in the Geoscience program and my focus is Geospatial Science. This class seemed very interesting because I think we should all know a bit more about geologic hazards. If everyone knew more about geologic hazards perhaps we as a nation could be more prepared to mitigate and possibly even prevent them.
Although I have been through several earthquakes and three hurricane’s, fortunately I have never truly had to experience the aftermath of a geologic disaster up close. Loss of power, downed power lines, and the occasional debris from hurricanes is about the extent of it. I consider myself lucky, because others I have known have been through them and have lost all of their wordly possesions.
I hope we all have a good and productive semester, and I look forward to learning more about geologic hazards.
