Earthquakes and geotechs

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
An interesting side note:
 
With the recent earthquake activity in So Cal, the news was interviewing a geotech who was 70 feet down a caisson hole doing a visual inspection when the latest quake hit.....
 
The pulled him free with the crane suffering only minor scrapes and bruises.
 
I for one couldn't be paid enough to go 70 feet down a 3 foot hole, the idea of an earthquake while down there produces a cold sweat...
