Even a recent study in which scientists practically guaranteed a major quake will strike California within the next 30 years, and a flurry of temblors -- in Nevada, off the Oregon coast and near Santa Rosa last week -- does not appear to have jostled people into action.These warnings are nothing new. Anyone who's lived in California for any period of time is well aware of the advice to get ready for The Big One. And yet most ignore it.

    Well... in the past week, a cyclone obliterated the entire rainforest nation of Burma (Myanmar), killing over 100,000 and just today the largest earthquake to hit China in over 20 years, killed 10,000. The fact that these horrible disasters happened in climates where such occurrences are somewhat abnormal... I think it's fair to prepare ourselves for what is also being hugely magnified on this side of the Pacific. Buckle up California... I think we're in for one hell of a ride...

    I don't know if it will be the worst natural disaster in history, but I think I will see a major major earthquake occur in Cali. Good thing I live on the East Coast.

    I didn't really like those answers, because even though I haven't heard about it before, it probably will happen but it probably won't ''be the worst natural disaster in history.''

    How big do they need to be to be called "The Big One"?? I mean wasen't there a 6.7 in 94?? That's big enough for me.

    I guess it all depends on your definition of "soon". Personally, I think that another big earthquake will hit, but I don't know when, and I don't have a personal definition of "soon" for that. I happened to be in downtown San Francisco, waiting for a train, when the Loma Prieta quake hit on October 17, 1989. People have known since at least 1906 that another big quake would hit, yet nobody (including me) was really prepared. The thinking still seems to be that "it won't happen in my lifetime, why worry?"

    Scientists always have theories about the big quake killing everyone in California and creating oceanfront property for Arizona residents. Lots of little quakes for many years now and still no big one. It will happen, but not anytime soon because of these.

    I feel for Cali but I am in AR and we are right on one giant fault line. Last time we had a big one the mighty Mississippi ran Backwards. They are expecting a big one here soon also. I think we should all take steps to have a family plan incase an emergency happens..where to go, what to do, and a little first aid and food/water supply on hand. You never know!!

    Well, I don't know about the worst...

    The volcanic eruption that completely eradicated the entire Minoan civilization supposedly was the largest volcanic eruption in the history of man. It was so large that the island that the Minoans lived on was over 100 miles away and every single one of them was wiped out.

    Hate to be alive for that. An Earthquake is probably equally scary though.

    I know the feeling. Even though I lived in the Bay Area during the time of the Loma Prieta quake, I moved. Here's the funniest part of that. Where I'm living now, on a clear day, I can see Mt. St. Helen's from just about any window or door I look out!!! How's that for planning for the "big one"? LMAO!!!!!
