Prevention is better than cure

An earthquake is considered as a violent and sudden shaking of the ground. It destroys everything in the area and greatly damages the infrastructure of buildings. For the most part, thousands of lives are in danger during and after its activity. Scientists created an earthquake forecasting model to reduce the damage input of this disaster. They made a research about 40 different earthquakes from all around the world and tried to construct a model from their observations. So now that they have a better understanding of earthquakes, they try to prevent what could happen to a certain area before it occurs. It becomes way easier to prepare a clear plan for when a disaster like that happens. The project is mostly implemented in Italy, since it’s a well known country for its earthquake activities.

Personally, I think that this project can lead to a big improvement in our earthquake knowledge. It’s a dangerous disaster that put way too much lives in danger. We need to create clear plans that are easy to follow so we can put the most possible amount of people in safety. You can’t really detect clearly when an earthquake will occur, so the best we can do is to prevent it. Also, if we’re able to know which locations are the most at risks to be destroyed, we can construct more solid buildings at this place. This strategy would reduce a lot the huge damages usually made by earthquakes.

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce texte parce que vous avez donné des informations claires et précise. Par contre, c'est très important de donné plus de statistique et de bien éllaboré votre texte. Votre titre est aussi très intriguant qui ma faits vouloir lire votre article.

I really liked your text. I think it is well written and easy to understand. You explained the problem and gave your opinion about it. I also think that it would be a good thing if we could prevent those disasters and be more prepared when they happen. Good job! (Anne-Julie P)
