    entirely alone. point taken.

    i'll counter, however, with the observation that a little seismicity can go a long way -- damage wise -- in areas that are not otherwise predisposed to such (i.e., say, Texas...), and also at very small scale if the soil conditions are such that any shaking might be exacerbated (see: (land)fill, liquefaction)

      does not have enough energy to damage any structure that would survive a stiff wind/rainstorm.

      Even masonry buildings will be OK until about 5.

      After that, of course, you're in doo-doo.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
