Tomorrow Is The Great California ShakeOut, Are You Ready?

Tomorrow at 10:16 AM the siren will sound at the PG&E Humboldt Bay Power Plant. That will be heard throughout the King Salmon and Humboldt Hill area as well as parts of the bay. The timing coincides with The Great California ShakeOut.

The Shakeout is designed to remind people that we live in Earthquake country. Do you have a plan?
Here is a good place to start when putting together an Earthquake Kit. That site is Ready.gov and the kit is applicable for anyone living anywhere where a disaster might strike including areas subject to floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, locusts and other things that can just ruin your day, week or month.

Here is some info from the Shakeout.org website:
While some areas of California are more likely to have earthquakes than others (see below), all of California is at higher risk compared to the rest of the country. You could be anywhere when an earthquake strikes: at home, at work, at school, or even on vacation.
What we do now will determine our quality of life after our next big earthquake. Are you prepared to survive and recover quickly?
The Great California ShakeOut is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes: "Drop, Cover and Hold On." The ShakeOut has also been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.
Registration totals from Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills across the U.S. are also included in America's PrepareAthon! participation totals.
