✏Strong in the Rain Book Summary : Blending history, science, and gripping storytelling, Strong in the Rain brings the 9.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Japan in 2011 and its immediate aftermath to life through the eyes of the men and women who experienced it. Following the narratives of six individuals, the book traces the shape of a disaster and the heroics it prompted, including that of David Chumreonlert, a Texan with Thai roots, trapped in his school's gymnasium with hundreds of students and teachers as it begins to flood, and Taro Watanabe, who thought nothing of returning to the Fukushima plant to fight the nuclear disaster, despite the effects that he knew would stay with him for the rest of his life. This is a beautifully written and moving account of how the Japanese experienced one of the worst earthquakes in history and endured its horrific consequences.

Claiming more than 15,000 lives, destroying thousands of homes, and wiping out infrastructure, the event was one of the worst natural disasters in Japan’s history. Yet even after damage to the Fukushima power plant resulted in one of the most devastating nuclear accidents—one that continues to affect surrounding areas years after the incident—the Japanese people and government showed resilience.

✏Surviving 7 8 Book Summary : The story of New Zealand’s response to its second most powerful earthquake on record Described by Geonet as one of the most complex earthquakes ever observed, RNZ's Vicky McKay was first to report on its violence, broadcasting live in the Wellington studio when 7.8 arrived by stealth at 12.02am. As intermittent reports came in from as far north as Auckland and south to Gore, confusion reigned and New Zealanders were asked to turn on public radio for live updates. Reporters for the national broadcaster scrambled - and leading the way was veteran journalist Phil Pennington, part of the first team to arrive in the damage zone. Surviving 7.8 relives the drama from the moment it struck to the remarkable, horrifying, yet fascinating events that followed, and the typically Kiwi response to a disaster of unbelievable scale. Throughout the narrative are quotes, tweets, Facebook posts and stories from everyday New Zealanders - the immediate reaction, the uncertainty, the turmoil, to the roll-your-sleeves-up, let's-get-on-with-it, do-it-yourself attitude that New Zealanders are known for. From Gary Melville, who used bricks that fell off his house to cook a lamb roast, to the Christchurch man who rallied to save the lives of thousands of paua; to the Rakautara residents stranded between two massive landslides, to the farmer who lent Phil Pennington his ute to get around the disaster zone, Surviving 7.8 captures the events and the sometimes bizarre twists and turns in a tough but fascinating study in resilience. 'Stealth and power - these are the hallmarks of a major earthquake. It arrives unheralded at the spot on which you stand or the bed in which you lie, and sends you reeling. Your family or friends can be all around you, next to you, clutching you, and you are powerless to help them; your partner may be on the other side of the bed, your child may be under a table across the room, and in that moment you are powerless to reach them and powerless to stop the shaking and swaying. In those moments, you feel tiny and the forces beneath you feel massive, even malevolent. You are caught up in a geological rollercoaster ride from which there is no way off and for which there is no stop button. You feel as though you have been king-hit by the very earth casting aside its moorings. It would be an awe-inspiring thing to go through if it wasn't so damn frightening; if it wasn't so damn unpredictable; if it wasn't so damn inevitable.' - Phil Pennington in Surviving 7.8

✏The Next New Madrid Earthquake Book Summary : Scientists who specialize in the study of Mississippi Valley earthquakes say that the region is overdue for a powerful tremor that will cause major damage and undoubtedly some casualties. The inevitability of a future quake and the lack of preparation by both individuals and communities provided the impetus for this book. Atkinson brings together applicable information from many disciplines: history, geology and seismology, engineering, zoology, politics and community planning, economics, environmental science, sociology, and psychology and mental health to provide the most comprehensive perspective to date of the myriad impacts of a major earthquake on the Mississippi Valley. Atkinson addresses such basic questions as "What, actually, are earthquakes? How do they occur? Where are they likely to occur? Can they be predicted, perhaps even prevented?" He also addresses those steps that individuals can take to improve their chances for survival both during and after an earthquake.
