Specific purpose: inform my audience on the dangers of an earthquake and what to do in case of one.
Speech thesis: Due to the recent catastrophic events such as the Mexico City earthquakes, it is important to inform ourselves on what we can do in case of an earthquake.
On September 7, 2017 a earthquake with a magnitude of 8.1 was felt in Mexico city. Twelve days later, another major earthquake with magnitude of 7.1 hit Mexico, 75 miles southeast from Mexico’s capitol near Puebla. A combined 300 people died from both incidents, including 21 children. Mexico City is no stranger to earthquakes, that is why they conduct drills, but not everyone is aware of such procedures. Due to the catastrophic events such as the Mexico City earthquakes, it is important to be informed on what to do in such scenarios. According to the institute of Geophysics in the University of Texas Earthquakes do occur in Texas. They urge Texans to learn about earthquakes and their hazards. That is what I want to talk to you about today, Earthquakes and what to do in case of one.
