this one i think especially conveys the overwhelming power of mother nature's wrath.

The one thing I heard this morning is that if the earthquake was centered in Boston - with the old buildings and the fact that our backbay area is basically part of the harbor that was filled in with dirt, the back bay area would be totaled even with an earthquake significantly of less magnitude than in Japan. Boston isn't made for earthquakes.
Although on the positive side - we should do ok with the upcoming hurricane.
Usually the hurricanes have been downgraded by the time they get up north here, we have had a few, but typically the damage is along the coast and losing electricity. We don't usually get the same damage as Florida and the Carolinas.
Although some of the winter storms can be pretty bad.
