Resources being finite, people and their governments (well maybe not
our federal one these days) tend to prepare for events that are likely
to happen. If we all prepared for catastrophes that occur every four
or five hundred years, we wouldn't have money left over for much else.

I'd like to see all the Californians I know who have been
poo-pooing our little earthquake and explaining how they are ready for
theirs face a nice Midwestern tornado, or even a decent size
thunderstorm <grump, grump, grump>. Here in the Midwest, when the
sirens go off people know enough to go for cover, and most of them
have a safe place to go. Whole towns have been scrubbed off the face
of the planet with only a small number of fatalities.
I believe it's called adapting to your environment.
