Just my opinion, but, not much about the changes I would consider improvements.

That’s too close to Charlotte, the Bank of America Stadium may have suffered structural damage, guess Obama better cancel his speech there.

I’ve been there. San Jose is an inland valley city and surrounded by volcanically-active mountains. The coastal plan on the Pacific side is especially exposed to a tsunami threat - it’s quite flat for a fair distance away from the coast. Met a lot of good people there - hope they are okay.

I was going to point out that if you have an earthquake in Costa Rica, it is by default, pretty close to San Jose; not a very big country.

You’re right. It is a small place. But it doesn’t seem small when you are trying to get from one place to another!

Spent a week on the coast north of the epicenter (Guanacaste)year before last and made some great friends. Hope everything is ok.

Over the years I have noticed a few things.

Websites seem to go through 3 major stages.

Stage One: Cluttered, crazy, but the info is there. No ads

Stage Two: Organized, simple, intuitive, informative. A few ads.

Stage Three: Cutesy, cluttered, crazy, and the info is hard to find. All ads.

It’s not a huge country, but it isn’t tiny, either. The topography is incredibly various - quickly ranging from sandy Atlantic beaches, to dense high-altitude rain forests, to hot,dry tropical valleys surrounded by volcanic mountains, and back to beautiful Pacific ocean fronts on the western side. It’s also pretty free and democratic for a Central American country and quite hospitable to small business. I could live there, if push came to shove.

The Dems should cancel their convention out of respect for the earthquake/tsunami victims. It would be insensitive to party while people were dying.

It is kind of funny, you can get across the country in about 5 hours, and that includes the slower speed limits and terrible road conditions!

Been there, went from San Jose to Puerto Viejo, was quite an adventure.

Another response, sorry, after I read your whole comment. We loved it. I was very taken with people who moved there to pursue their dreams, running restaurants, whatever. It was very relaxing in that respect, very slow paced. Very enjoyable.

I have considered, on many occasions, what it would take to own a hotel or rental property there.

Yeah you can’t really see the early response before the quake hit now because of the returns ongoing from the main shock but they were there just like before the Cali quake last week.

I say simply odd.

That is in the area of an old lake bed?

I found that the roads varied from surprisingly good to laughably bad (especially in the mountains).

If you want to go exploring, having a 4WD vehicle with a winch is not a bad idea. The first time I went, I was on a tour bus winding around steep mountain passes with what looked like about 6 inches to spare and no guardrail. One rediscovers prayer at such moments.

you mean in California?

Salton sea is a geological quagmire. The area is spreading not unlike the Mid Atlantic Ridge. Though then confined by the NA Plate and Pacific Plate rubbing together. Very strange then throw in the volcanic history well it's just beautiful.

Many have thought that it was indeed an areas just like this that caused the eventual breakup of the Pangaea and then still others suggested it was areas like this that caused the plates to move to create it.

For the doomsdayers some also say it is this area that will cause the islandization of eastern California(not San Andreas Fault). Totally breaking apart allowing the Gulf of California's Water to once again take hold.
