I will do my best to never again ask an earthquake question one month before a major quake. Promise.

R A Fontes: Thanks for asking it. It was a question I had on my mind as soon as seeing some of the devastation in Japan, and I was glad to see someone had asked something along those lines. I never thought of how TriMet's fleet of buses could make for temporary shelters for people displaced by an earthquake, for example.
