If you are stuck in an earthquake we got your back.
Reasons to start being earthquake ready
Earthquakes and natural disasters can happen at any time or place if you are not Earthquake ready anything could happen without the supplies you need.
Take Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy for example, it was a normal day for people they didn’t expect the worse, until the worse happened. People even went outside hours before the disaster even happened. Just imagine the people who thought it was just a storm and didn’t prepare. Hurricane Katrina was a extremely deadly hurricane a estimated 1,833 lives were lost. With Superstorm Sandy 147 lives were lost.
That should really make you think if you should be earthquake ready because it can happen even if you think it won’t.
