This advance warning allows people to prepare themselves and their homes to weather the storm.."

How Much Does it Cost to Earthquake Retrofit a Home -  from the site, "Any home that is 25 years or older will likely need to be retrofitted because of new understandings of the effects of earthquakes on buildings. Homes built in the 1990s or later typically already have earthquake-resistant features installed during construction. It's imperative that homeowners who live in active seismic zones have their homes retrofitted to prevent damage and injury. The process will also improve a home's ability to keep residents safe during an earthquake and homes habitable after a major disaster. In addition, retrofitting will greatly reduce repair costs after a seismic event and may even prevent damage entirely. Finally, retrofitting a home will reduce earthquake insurance premiums, which have increased dramatically in recent years. Moreover, most of these insurance benefits have also decreased, making it far more risky than ever not to retrofit a home."

If you enter the orbital elements of an asteroid or comet, Your Sky will compute its current position and plot it on the map. Each map is accompanied by an ephemeris for the Sun, Moon, planets, and any tracked asteroid or comet. A control panel permits customisation of which objects are plotted, limiting magnitudes, colour scheme, image size, and other parameters.
