This morning's very large 8.8 quake in Chile and recent Haiti quake has pondering the question, "Am I ready for the big one?"
What have you done to prepare? Are you ready?
True they say that us folks in San Diego are at lower risk than our California brethren in LA and San Fran. However, we are still in earthquake country. A big one in LA will be felt down here. Actually, many places you wouldn't consider earthquake prone in the US have had major earthquakes at some point in history, e.g. New Madrid earthquake magnitude 8+ in the midwest
Here's an interesting US Geologic Survey site on California earthquakes, it is near realtime reporting of earthquakes via networked ground sensors. When I felt the slight rumble from LA earthquake last year I immediately checked the site.
So this leads to the question.....What have you done to prepare?
Here's some things I've done (man, I must have too much free time)
I may be a bit retentive, but I was a boy scout!
