USGS lecture on 'catastrophic earthquakes'

We're just into the 21st century and already there have been several catastrophic earthquakes. Why? Research geologist Thomas L. Holzer of the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, in a free public lecture, will address this particular question and talk about urbanization and the vulnerability of mega-cities to natural hazards.

The lecture, "Catastrophic earthquakes in a crowded world," is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, April 24, in the Building 3 auditorium at 345 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park.
