People, time to take it seriously! The odds of a damaging earthquake in Victoria is about one in three in the next 50 years but as research is done over and over again the odds are higher than people expected.
Each time we have a small quake a few more people are reminded we need to get ready for a serious earthquake.
Note the comments at 2:30. One important reason Christchurch managed to deal with the earthquake better than we could here is because there is a single local government, not 13 competing ones that are refusing to cooperate effectively on emergency planning.
