The most powerful earthquake in Virginia recorded history rattled the area one year ago, but geology analysts and emergency officials Thursday warned that the city still is far from being fully restored or ready for a future disaster.
"We can never predict when the next disaster will be or what the next disaster will be," said Timothy Manning, deputy administrator for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. "But we do know there is a hazard here."
Mr. Manning said the stream of people fleeing office buildings instead of staying put and taking cover as the District shook last yearwas a "good indicator" that "D.C. residents may not understand the appropriate steps to take" in an earthquake.
