Cities prepare with earthquake scenarios

This week I am looking at earthquake scenarios. Many facilities and cities are preparing them, and sometimes running through them with actual drills. The area around Seattle is quite a hot zone for earthquake risk. Forgetting about the 'super' M9 quake, there are things one can do for a smaller earthquake. They have a lot of water and soft soils, so the expected damage is appreciable.
