SUTD-MIT Postdoctoral Fellow Ornella Iuorio explores structural retrofits to improve earthquake preparedness in Boston’s Back Bay

March 24, 2015

In 1755, a major earthquake shook the Boston area, toppling chimneys and inspiring sermons and poems about the wrath of God, such as Earthquakes the Works of God and Tokens of his Just Displeasure and The Duty of a People, Under Dark Providences. The quake, whose epicenter was about 25 miles from Cape Anne and 50 miles out to sea from Boston, measured an estimated 6.0 to 6.3 on the Richter scale. Since then, Bostonians have not had to worry much about the ground beneath them. In fact, preparing for earthquakes is probably near the bottom of the city’s to do list. But what if another major earthquake were to strike? According to SUTD-MIT postdoctoral fellow Ornella Iuorio, it would not be good.
