  • Damn new zealand, argentina and now japan. Those plates are on the move, get your earthquake kit and family emergency plan together and ready to go.

    Some of the best preparedness information Ive found online is from folks who have gone through big natural disasters and learned certain things the hard way and are sharing in the hopes others will not have to go through what they did. Namely titles to land, car, etc kept in safety deposit box instead of home and keeping an actual watch with you &/or your kit, we all depend on cel phones to tell the time these days!!

  • Kym: Did you mean “three and ten feet” or meters? af

  • The question is… who’s fault is it??? Heh.
