Yesterday 6.0 earthquake in Napa is a stark reminder that we live in Earthquake Country. There are many faults throughout the state capable of destructive earthquakes, and there are things we can all do to be prepared to survive and recover. The Great California ShakeOut on October 16 is part of a worldwide earthquake preparedness drill when more than 10 million people in California¬–-along with many more worldwide–-will practice a basic “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” drill. It’s also a great opportunity for you to review, revise and update your plans to prepare for, survive and recover from a major earthquake.
