The Northridge Earthquake
FEMA images. The lower image is of a collapsed freeway bridge.
Twenty-five years ago was the devastating Northridge Earthquake. Fifty-seven people died. There is video of the coverage from KNBC TV (Los Angeles) here. Like the "Miracle on the Hudson," it is an example of a "low probability/high impact event."
I also wish to thank the Wichita Eagle for printing my column on this topic in today's business section. It is recommended reading for those who manage mission critical businesses. It is at the blue link above.
