  • Ok so we had an earthquake..how prepared are you?

    So we had an earthquake...I noticed today my sister took out the emergency kit ( I know I know..she is a little parnoid) and I started to ponder a while ago..how many of us are truely prepared for BIG earthquake in terms of supplies and such?

                      I usually carry a back pack emergency kit in my car since I commute between OC and LA several days a week. At home we have a large emergency duffel bag full of stuff. I've had both for more than 5 years, so I need to replace the food and water in them.
