Earthquake risk in eastern Canada: mind the shakes

While Western Canada is often associated with earthquake risk, the more densely populated East, which includes three of the country's biggest cities, Montreal, Ottawa, and Quebec City, are also in seismically active zones. In fact, 70% of the population of Quebec lives in seismic regions. A major earthquake could result in significant losses in an area that includes a concentration of economic assets and population.

2017年第2期 2016 年的自然灾害与人为灾难:损害范围广泛的一年

In terms of devastation wreaked, there were a number of large-scale disasters across the world in 2016, including earthquakes in Japan, Ecuador, Tanzania, Italy and New Zealand. There were also a number of severe floods in the US and across Europe and Asia, and a record high number of weather events in the US. The strongest was Hurricane Matthew, which became the first Category 5 storm to form over the North Atlantic since 2007, and which caused the largest loss of life – more than 700 victims, mostly in Haiti – of a single event in the year. Another expansive, and expensive, disaster was the wildfire that spread through Alberta and Saskatchewan in Canada from May to July.
