In the event of a catastrophe (for instance, a large hurricane, tornado, earthquake, or attack), will Dominion similarly find itself scrambling for solutions? Though Virginia's Fukushima has not yet materialized, the political climate surrounding it is not unlike Japan's before 2011.
I find myself asking whether this earthquake is a wake up call for us to remember we need to be prepared for another 9/11. We don't want to be. We want to believe that it won't happen again. But it will at some point and we need to be ready in whatever ways we can.
It will take several days to gauge the overall fall out from yesterday's estimated 5.9 quake centered in Virginia, but it didn't take long for West Coasters to get extra snarky on Twitter and Facebook.
