I missed today's 5.1 at 11:42 am and the 3.1 aftershock by about a half hour (did not feel it in the car). It's the reminder we all need--water, food, batteries, etc etc.


Is it "Fortunate or "Unfortunate" that a little earthquake comes to remind us how unprepared "Our Fair City" is?
In particular, "long/short term survival."


Hearing multiple news reports of the 6.4 near Ferndale/Eureka that hit at about 2:40 am and caused a lot of damage brings yet another reminder. It's a rural area with not much emergency infrastructure. 60 911 calls in the first 90 minutes overwhelmed the services. Long lines for gas and bottled water. And an expectation of 48 hours without power.

You know what to do from here. Check the quake kit. Refresh the water and batteries. Are the meds up to date in the kit?
