If the Pacific Ocean within a second overflows your Los Angeles town, what you can do? What your scientists can do? “Nothing, sir.” But it can be done, at any moment. What is the difficulty? One big wave. Skyscraper building, all skyscrapers will be finished. So that is called nature’s disturbance.
