As the first small waves arrive at the coast, Parkinson symptoms begin to flood the land. More waves follow, causing larger parts of the land to become flooded. Once the symptoms are recognised as Parkinson’s and treatment started, costal defences are built to prevent further flooding. As bigger waves come ashore these defences are breached, requiring bigger barriers to be built further in land. Thus begins the fight to keep the flood in check as bigger waves hit the land.
There is an obvious need to prevent the earthquake from happening or to at least minimise its effect. Failing that, better coastal defences should be designed and built to preserve as much of the land as possible.
