On the physical model of earthquake precursor fields and the mechanism of precursors? time-space distribution (II) — How do the stress and strain fields evolve while a strong earthquake is in preparation and how does the evolution affect the seismicity and earthquake precursors? In this paper, the stress concentration process and the time-space distribution of stress when earthquakes are in preparation in one or more earthquake-generating bodies in a tectonic block have been analyzed and their relation with seismicity and earthquake precursors have been studied.

This is in preparation for an earthquake that could hit Metro Manila by a magnitude of 7.2, kill 33,500 people and destroy 40% of infrastructures. Know where to meet and hide during an earthquake, learn your work or  school’s earthquake plan.

For example, securing loose items in shelves and cabinets as well as not leaving heavy things on top of furniture. Some of these maybe smaller than the main shock, but some may be strong enough to cause additional damage. Stay away from beaches. What started as a small blog from Manila, quickly turned into a platform, an online magazine that boasts the stories from Manila, the Philippines and the world. If you own property subject to a debt, cancellation of the debt also may occur because of a foreclosure, a repossession, a voluntary transfer of the property to the lender, abandonment of the property, or a mortgage modification. Most eligible organizations are listed in Exempt Organizations Select Check (Pub 78 database). Instead, the amount of forgiven debt is included in the amount realized in determining gain on the sale of that residence. The IRS guidance did not specifically address other types of real estate transactions such as non-judicial foreclosures and mortgage loan modifications. If your surviving parent has a will or living trust, you should eventually have him or her review it and change it, if necessary, to reflect your parent’s current life circumstances and wishes.

In addition, investigate other benefits to which your parent may be entitled, including pension, veterans, or other employment-related payouts. Check title documents for real estate, vehicles, bank or brokerage accounts, and other significant assets to see whether you need to update ownership records. Also take a look at who is named as beneficiary of retirement plans and any other major assets that will pass outside the will or trust. The regional stress field will vary with time and the occurrence of strong earthquakes in groups is the result of the evolution of this dynamic stress field. Whether it is in writing, photographing moments, painting, drawing, or just discovering a new awesome artist that is not "mainstream". In this process, the existence and development of more than one high stress concentration zone may give rise to a variety of pre-seismic anomaly-to-earthquake relations.
2 The process of stress variation in an earthquake-generating block generally appears as a nonlinear one. After the long-term elastic deformation, there may be more than one time of inelastic deformation and fault-softening from the beginning of the stage of inelastic deformation to just before the main fracture.
Corresponding to such a nonlinearity, the stress and strain fields in the earthquake-generating block will display a complex pattern of time-space evolution; and thus the earthquake precursor fields controlled by stress and strain must display complexities in many aspects.
