An Alameda elementary school will probably close after the school year because structural engineers discovered the soil beneath it could liquefy during an earthquake, the district announced. Engineers discovered the risk at Donald Lum Elementary School on Sandcreek Way in February during preparation for construction of a new classroom building. “District staff will be recommending that Lum Elementary School be closed at the end of this school year and that Lum students be enrolled in other,...

An Alameda elementary school at risk of catastrophic damage in a major earthquake will close at the end of this academic year, the district board decided Tuesday night, overruling parents and school officials who had pleaded to keep the campus open. During an at times raucous board meeting, parents and students of Lum Elementary School repeatedly asked the board to delay voting on the closure so they could collect more information about the danger to the campus and alternatives to closing...

A federal agency that supports basic science research is completing installation in Alaska of an array of seismometers as part of its quest to map the Earth’s upper crust beneath North America. At the end of this summer, there will be 260, swathing the state with instruments that record seismic waves and give geologists a picture of the upper 50 miles of the Earth. A helicopter flies in a lightweight drill rig to dig into bedrock or permafrost for the seismograph, said Bob Busby,...

School officials and a group of distressed parents in Alameda agree that if a big earthquake strikes, the saturated ground under Lum Elementary School would likely become unstable, a process known as liquefaction that could cause classrooms to sink and come apart. District Superintendent Sean McPhetridge, on the advice of two structural engineering firms that studied the soil, recommended closing Lum at the end of the school year and moving students to several other city schools. Some...

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission relied on faulty analysis to justify its refusal to adopt a critical measure for protecting Americans from nuclear-waste fires at dozens of reactor sites around the country, according to a recent article. Radioactivity from such a fire could force approximately 8 million people to relocate and result in $2 trillion in damages.

One out of three people in the world is exposed to earthquakes, a number which almost doubled in the past 40 years. Around 1 billion in 155 countries are exposed to floods and 414 million live near one of the 220 most dangerous volcanoes. The 2017 edition of the  Atlas of the Human Planet looks at the exposure of people and built-up areas to the six major natural hazards, and its evolution over the last 40 years.
