Be Ready. Have a kit for home , car and work. Make a plan to communicate with family. Learn what hazards can occur and the appropriate response to take. Practice your plans regularly.

Be Prepared. Some wake up calls are too often ignored. This was a tap on the shoulder. If it didn't get your attention the next one will. Expect it before end of April 2011.

thanks henry press, how do you know this?

I slept through it.

It's was in Channel Islands per USGS. Get over it!

that is scary

Thanks for your feedback Henry Press AKA Miss Cleo

I guess this was the earthquake that guy on Fox News predicted? weak sauce.

shake it!

if you don't have food and water at your home and some basic gear in your car (even if it's just balance bars!) you are going to be hosed when the big one comes.

If you were not around for landers, Northridge, Loma Prieta or Sylmar...your opinions, thoughts and feelings doesn't mean anything.

those were baby-steps.

If you've never been outside the country to see how bad things get when there aren't any government "services" like water, electricity, natural gas and LAW & ORDER, then your opinion doesn't mean anything.

Please get your emergency stuff together or you'll be looting your local Stater Brothers to have something to eat.
After a couple of days, there is nothing left and then you're on your own. Do you think OUR government can provide aid faster than the Japanese did?
Really? With all the bridges and roads messed up? Cars can't drive. Trucks can't drive. You can't even BIKE anywhere.

What about all the natural gas and electrical fires that will be everywhere?

Without some provisions and some protection you'll be at the mercy of.....

A 3.3 is so small its not worth mentioning. If we get a 4.5, let me know. On the other hand people, do you have 7 days of food and water at your home just in case? YOU SHOULD...
