A mind-blowing new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today, whose transcript of sees Security Council Members discussing a classified at the highest level “Of Special Importance” document prepared by the General Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces (GRU), first notes in the portions of this highly-classified document permitted to be openly discussed by various ministries that, at 06:10 GMT this morning, Aerospace Defence Forces (ADF) detected a 1,900-megawatt beam of energy (enough energy to supply 1.9-million homes) directed into the ionosphere emanating from the island of Hainan, which is the smallest and southernmost province of the People’s Republic of China (PRC)—an unannounced test by the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) of their giant new ionosphere weapon system located on Hainan—after which, at 06:15 GMT, the Alaskan Peninsula was rocked by huge 8.2-magnitude earthquake, that makes it the sixth largest in recorded American history.
This report notes that just two days ago, Security Council Members discussed their fears that China would soon retaliate against the United States for using its High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) ionosphere weapon to trigger rainfall in China not seen in a 1,000-years, that’s caused catastrophic flooding—is a HAARP weapon so feared, the 1992 final report issued by the State Duma about its capabilities stated: “Under the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, the U.S. is creating a new integral geophysical weapon that may influence the near-Earth medium with high-frequency radio waves…The significance of this qualitative leap could be compared to the transition from cold steel to fire arms, or from conventional weapons to nuclear weapons”—then in 2010, it saw the commander of the Northern Fleet reporting to President Putin that the Americans used their HAARP weapon to create a “vortex” in the Gulf of Aden that challenged all the laws of physics.
In 2018, this report details, the PLA began construction on their own giant ionosphere weapon that was estimated to have only several hundred megawatts, compared to HAARP’s 5.1 gigawatts of power—but with the PLA knowing what the Northern Fleet encountered in the Gulf of Aden when HAARP was activated, when the skies over China began to erupt with bizarre electrical phenomena it was no wonder they rushed over these past few weeks to activate their giant ionosphere weapon.
The Chinese retaliatory attack against HAARP, this report continues, immediately followed it being stunningly revealed that the Pentagon is in total panic and rapidly seeking a new warfighting paradigm after it suffered devastating losses in classified wargames—failed Pentagon wargames which simulated a battle for Taiwan among other scenarios—are devastating Pentagon wargame losses coming at the same time top US defense experts are grimly reporting: “The U.S. Navy is on the verge of strategic bankruptcy…Its fleet isn’t large enough to meet global day-to-day demands for naval forces…Due to repeated deployments and maintenance backlogs, the fleet also isn’t ready enough to meet these demands safely, nor can it quickly surge in an emergency…Finally, the fleet isn’t capable enough to meet the challenges posed by China’s increasingly modern and aggressive People’s Liberation Army Navy”—sees these top US defense experts further warning that the US Navy is in dire straights caused by “bureaucratic bloat and catastrophic reforms, brought about by decades of weak leadership and gross mismanagement”—and because of the woke rampage through the US Navy ordered by Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden to indoctrinate all of its forces, this week saw one of its top commanders gravely reporting: “We were expecting trouble in the Pacific, but we were only ready for inspection”.
This report concludes with Security Council Members in this transcript discussing the “Hornet Nest” attack by NATO forces that killed 14 Russian sailors in July-2019—a discussion whose entirety of is redacted from this transcript because of its highest classification level—though this discussion is, most certainly, directly related to the Chinese attack on HAARP, specifically because right after this NATO attack, Russia unleashed its earthquake weapon on America in swift retaliation causing more than $5-billion in damage to the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake in California—a Russian earthquake weapon the Americans already knew existed, because the highest ranking former Soviet Union GRU officer to ever defect to the US, Stanislav Lunev, revealed to the Americans Russia’s most secret war plans and special weapons—and as he described in the following exchange:
Question from B: New kinds of weapons seem to be coming out of Russia, here is a new one on me, maybe a lot of other people, what is a seismic weapon and was/ is the Russian government doing to produce them?
Lunev answer: This is actually artificial earthquake, which could be generated by special devices, which increase natural seismic waves, which are under our (Earth’s) surface and explode like natural earthquake with all following circumstances. Its actually, this weapon development was in place for about more than 20 years and in the mid of 80s there have been several fields tests of this weapons and maybe you heard this Armenian city Spitak was totally destroyed.
Question from B: Good lord, don’t tell me that was a Soviet test?
Lunev answer: It was an accidental explosion.
Question from B: That was an artificially induced earthquake?
Lunev answer: It was accidental explosion of earthquake which was generated by the test of seismic weapons.
Researchers say a massive earthquake and tsunami could soon strike the Northwest US coast, killing more than 10,000 people, flooding entire towns, and causing economic damages totaling $32 billion.
An alarming report published by the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission warns about the dire effects of the quake and claims that it is imminent and could strike anytime. The report, which was compiled by a group of more than 150 volunteer experts, was requested by the Oregon legislature in order to adequately prepare for the looming disaster.
The last high magnitude earthquake in the region occurred in the year 1700 in the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The quake had a magnitude between 8.7 and 9.2, and geologists in 2010 predicted that there is a 37 percent change of another such quake occurring within 50 years. The new report claims that there is a 100 percent chance of a monster earthquake occurring in the region.
“It’ll spread from Canada to California over 800 miles,” Oregon State University paleoseismologist Chris Goldfinger told CBN News.
One day it will happen. With little or no warning, the Cascadia Subduction Zone will produce a catastrophic earthquake and accompanying tsunami that will essentially destroy everything west of Interstate 5 in the Pacific Northwest.
According to the data buoy, the water column height (depth) fell sharply within minutes off the coast of Oregon, signaling the land beneath the ocean has suddenly “sunk.” Here are the graphs showing what the ocean data buoy recorded:
As of 0231:30, the initial water column height is 2738.80 Meters deep (8985.56 feet). Two minutes and thirty seconds later, that same water column height had dropped to 2738.66 Meters deep (8985.10 feet). Where did the four inches of water disappear to? Answer: The earth sunk; and continued to sink for the next several HOURS. As you can see from the second chart above, from 0230 GMT to 0600 GMT, the ocean continued to sink to 2737.7 meters deep (8981.95 feet). The buoy is too far away from shore to be affected by high/low tide, so where did the four feet of ocean water disappear to?
This means a Tectonic Plate in the Ocean named the “Juan de Fuca Plate” has made a sudden, eastward movement and slipped beneath another Tectonic Plate named the “North American Plate.” This type of event is usually followed by a massive upward movement of the North American Plate causing a very severe earthquake.
Here’s a map of the relevant Tectonic Plates:
In the year 1700, a similar movement of plates is believed to have been the cause of a Magnitude 9.0 earthquake, which devastated the west coast of north America, and generated an ocean Tsunami that washed inland upwards of ten MILES!
Lest you think that four feet of ocean depth is nothing to be concerned about, be reminded that the entire column of water . . . all 8985 feet of it . . . is what dropped four feet. And it did so over an area several miles wide!
When the tectonic plate snaps back upward, it can launch that entire 8985 foot column of water upward and toward the shore!
As the continental shelf rises toward the shore (the ocean gets more shallow) that 8985 foot column of water starts accumulating upon itself as it moves toward shore, becoming one massive wave, perhaps 45-50 feet tall, that hits the shore for twenty minutes!
Now do you see why this is a big deal?
If such a thing were to happen today, hundreds-of-thousands of people would be killed as a fifteen meter (45 foot) wall of water came ashore well inland passing Interstate 5 and destroying everything its path from the beach to Interstate 5.
Here is a map of I-5, everything to the left of it (to the west) would be wiped out:
Mount Hood Volcano Can Be Triggered to Erupt
This type of Tectonic Movement has a direct effect upon the volcanos in the Cascadia Volcanic Chain, in particular, Mount Hood.
When the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate goes beneath the North American plate, it begins to get crushed. The heat from the friction of the two massive plates rubbing together, melts the Juan de Fuca plate into Magma (lava).
Directly next to the Cascadia Subduction Zone is the Mount Hood Volcano. Here’s a graphic to show you the relevant details:
All along the Cascadia Subduction Zone are volcanoes. Most of them are inactive, but some are quite active. Here is a map of the volcanoes in the Cascade Mountains Range, so you have an understanding of the pressure relief valves (volcanoes) created over millions of years by these two tectonic plates scraping together. Mount Hood is to the right (east of) Portland, Oregon . . .
There is a magma tunnel leading directly from the Cascadia Subduction Zone straight up into Mount Hood! As the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate is being crushed (right now) it is melting into magma (lava). Whether or not there is enough magma to cause Mount Hood to erupt is unknown.
There has merely been an “event” in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Oregon in the Cascadia Subduction Zone. This is a very rare occurrence with serious implications. It is worthy of very close monitoring by persons in the potentially-affected areas. This event is a potential warning of a POSSIBLE pending large earthquake on the west coast. There could also be an eruption at Mount Hood.
Folks in Washington, Oregon and northern California as well as in Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA, should make certain they are prepared to take emergency action in the event a major quake does strike.
In fact, the science is robust, and one of the chief scientists behind it is Chris Goldfinger. Thanks to work done by him and his colleagues, we now know that the odds of the big Cascadia earthquake happening in the next fifty years are roughly one in three. The odds of the very big one are roughly one in ten. Even those numbers do not fully reflect the danger—or, more to the point, how unprepared the Pacific Northwest is to face it. The truly worrisome figures in this story are these: Thirty years ago, no one knew that the Cascadia subduction zone had ever produced a major earthquake. Forty-five years ago, no one even knew it existed.
In May of 1804, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, together with their Corps of Discovery, set off from St. Louis on America’s first official cross-country expedition. Eighteen months later, they reached the Pacific Ocean and made camp near the present-day town of Astoria, Oregon. The United States was, at the time, twenty-nine years old. Canada was not yet a country. The continent’s far expanses were so unknown to its white explorers that Thomas Jefferson, who commissioned the journey, thought that the men would come across woolly mammoths. Native Americans had lived in the Northwest for millennia, but they had no written language, and the many things to which the arriving Europeans subjected them did not include seismological inquiries. The newcomers took the land they encountered at face value, and at face value it was a find: vast, cheap, temperate, fertile, and, to all appearances, remarkably benign.
A century and a half elapsed before anyone had any inkling that the Pacific Northwest was not a quiet place but a place in a long period of quiet. It took another fifty years to uncover and interpret the region’s seismic history. Geology, as even geologists will tell you, is not normally the sexiest of disciplines; it hunkers down with earthly stuff while the glory accrues to the human and the cosmic—to genetics, neuroscience, physics. But, sooner or later, every field has its field day, and the discovery of the Cascadia subduction zone stands as one of the greatest scientific detective stories of our time.
The first clue came from geography. Almost all of the world’s most powerful earthquakes occur in the Ring of Fire, the volcanically and seismically volatile swath of the Pacific that runs from New Zealand up through Indonesia and Japan, across the ocean to Alaska, and down the west coast of the Americas to Chile.
Japan, 2011, magnitude 9.0; Indonesia, 2004, magnitude 9.1; Alaska, 1964, magnitude 9.2; Chile, 1960, magnitude 9.5—not until the late nineteen-sixties, with the rise of the theory of plate tectonics, could geologists explain this pattern. The Ring of Fire, it turns out, is really a ring of subduction zones. Nearly all the earthquakes in the region are caused by continental plates getting stuck on oceanic plates—as North America is stuck on Juan de Fuca—and then getting abruptly unstuck. And nearly all the volcanoes are caused by the oceanic plates sliding deep beneath the continental ones, eventually reaching temperatures and pressures so extreme that they melt the rock above them.
The first sign that the Cascadia earthquake has begun will be a compressional wave, radiating outward from the fault line. Compressional waves are fast-moving, high-frequency waves, audible to dogs and certain other animals but experienced by humans only as a sudden jolt.They are not very harmful, but they are potentially very useful, since they travel fast enough to be detected by sensors thirty to ninety seconds ahead of other seismic waves. That is enough time for earthquake early-warning systems, such as those in use throughout Japan, to automatically perform a variety of lifesaving functions: shutting down railways and power plants, opening elevators and firehouse doors, alerting hospitals to halt surgeries, and triggering alarms so that the general public can take cover. The Pacific Northwest has no early-warning system. When the Cascadia earthquake begins, there will be, instead, a cacophony of barking dogs and a long, suspended, what-was-that moment before the surface waves arrive. Surface waves are slower, lower-frequency waves that move the ground both up and down and side to side: the shaking, starting in earnest.
Soon after that shaking begins, the electrical grid will fail, likely everywhere west of the Cascades and possibly well beyond. If it happens at night, the ensuing catastrophe will unfold in darkness. In theory, those who are at home when it hits should be safest; it is easy and relatively inexpensive to seismically safeguard a private dwelling. But, lulled into nonchalance by their seemingly benign environment, most people in the Pacific Northwest have not done so. That nonchalance will shatter instantly. So will everything made of glass. Anything indoors and unsecured will lurch across the floor or come crashing down: bookshelves, lamps, computers, cannisters of flour in the pantry. Refrigerators will walk out of kitchens, unplugging themselves and toppling over. Water heaters will fall and smash interior gas lines. Houses that are not bolted to their foundations will slide off—or, rather, they will stay put, obeying inertia, while the foundations, together with the rest of the Northwest, jolt westward. Unmoored on the undulating ground, the homes will begin to collapse.
Across the region, other, larger structures will also start to fail. Until 1974, the state of Oregon had no seismic code, and few places in the Pacific Northwest had one appropriate to a magnitude-9.0 earthquake until 1994. The vast majority of buildings in the region were constructed before then. Ian Madin, who directs the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI), estimates that seventy-five per cent of all structures in the state are not designed to withstand a major Cascadia quake. FEMAcalculates that, across the region, something on the order of a million buildings—more than three thousand of them schools—will collapse or be compromised in the earthquake. So will half of all highway bridges, fifteen of the seventeen bridges spanning Portland’s two rivers, and two-thirds of railways and airports; also, one-third of all fire stations, half of all police stations, and two-thirds of all hospitals.
Among natural disasters, tsunamis may be the closest to being completely unsurvivable. The only likely way to outlive one is not to be there when it happens: to steer clear of the vulnerable area in the first place, or get yourself to high ground as fast as possible. For the seventy-one thousand people who live in Cascadia’s inundation zone, that will mean evacuating in the narrow window after one disaster ends and before another begins. They will be notified to do so only by the earthquake itself—“a vibrate-alert system,” Kevin Cupples, the city planner for the town of Seaside, Oregon, jokes—and they are urged to leave on foot, since the earthquake will render roads impassable. Depending on location, they will have between ten and thirty minutes to get out. That time line does not allow for finding a flashlight, tending to an earthquake injury, hesitating amid the ruins of a home, searching for loved ones, or being a Good Samaritan. “When that tsunami is coming, you run,” Jay Wilson, the chair of the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission (OSSPAC), says. “You protect yourself, you don’t turn around, you don’t go back to save anybody. You run for your life.”
It will be the worst natural disaster up to that point in American history, and as you will see below, the experts are saying that we are completely and utterly unprepared for it. Of course the San Andreas Fault gets more publicity, but the truth is that the Cascadia Subduction Zone is capable of producing a quake “almost 30 times more energetic” than anything the San Andreas Fault can produce.
The Cascadia Subduction Zone stretches from northern Vancouver Island all the way down to northern California, and one expert recently told CBN News that….
The Pacific Northwest, located along the Cascadia subduction zone, a fault that runs from Vancouver Island to northern California, is bracing itself for an earthquake as pressure has built up in the zone since the 1700s, Yeats said. He said the eventual earthquake could measure at a magnitude of 9, and could be potentially comparable to the San Sixto earthquake, which hit Mexico in 1787 with an estimated magnitude of 8.6.
“The thickness and size of the plates means that when it finally goes, it is going to cause a very big earthquake,” he said. Yeats said it is impossible to know when the earthquake will occur, but has measured the buildup of strain on the Earth’s crust near the subduction zone.
“Unfortunately, we just don’t know how to tell when exactly it is. We are certainly envious of people who could predict the eclipse,” he said, referring to the solar eclipse that crossed the sky earlier this year.
Once the earthquake hits, cities like Seattle and Portland will bear the brunt of the earthquake in body counts because they are more densely populated than the surrounding regions, Moschetti said.
With no time frame for the predicted earthquake, Oregonians need to be constantly prepared for one. The report warns of death and devastation ranging from British Columbia to Northern California, the worst of which will strike Oregon.
“Oregonians as individuals are underprepared,” Maree Wacker, chief executive officer of the American Red Cross of Oregon, told AP.
An earthquake, together with the resulting tsunami, could leave Oregonians without water, power, heat, telephone services, and in some cases, gasoline. After a deadly earthquake and tsunami hit Japan in 2011, lawmakers grew concerned that a similar disaster could occur in the US. The report says that geographically, Oregon and Japan are almost identical – but that Japan was far more prepared than Oregon would be if it faced the same fate.
How much all this will cost is anyone’s guess; FEMAputs every number on its relief-and-recovery plan except a price. But whatever the ultimate figure—and even though U.S. taxpayers will cover seventy-five to a hundred per cent of the damage, as happens in declared disasters—the economy of the Pacific Northwest will collapse. Crippled by a lack of basic services, businesses will fail or move away. Many residents will flee as well. OSSPAC predicts a mass-displacement event and a long-term population downturn. Chris Goldfinger didn’t want to be there when it happened. But, by many metrics, it will be as bad or worse to be there afterward.
There you have it. This is serious stuff. What took place today in the Cascadia Subduction Zone must be paid attention to. Your life may literally depend on it.
Energy source transitions do not happen over night. It took us 100 years to transfer from wood to coal, and another 100 years to move from coal to oil. But the next energy transition must happen quicker than previous ones, and it must include free energy.
How To Prepare For An Earthquake – 5 Things You Should Know
Earthquakes happen anywhere, any time, and without any warning, so preparing is key
Earthquakes are abrupt, devastating and disastrous, and what makes them worse is that they happen in an instant, without warning, anytime, anywhere.
It is because of this that many residents in ‘high risk’ areas should know what to do during an earthquake, as well as how to prepare for an earthquake, should it ever happen.
As dangerous and destructive as they are, there are a few things you can do to both minimize your risks, as well as lessen the impact an earthquake may have on your family during and after the event, so in this post, we look at how to prepare for an earthquake to ensure you are ready for the worst.
While earthquakes do happen all over the world, there are some more high-risk areas where earthquakes are more likely to happen.
According to Earthquakes Report, the top 5 high-risk earthquake areas in the US are:
Chances are, if you are living in one of these areas, you would have already experienced tremors, shaking, or a complete earthquake already. We can also see the hazard areas for earthquakes marked on this map below.
That is not to say that earthquakes do not happen anywhere else. They do, and they strike at any time. Unfortunately, for some of us, we can’t help but live in these high-risk areas, whether it be for work, family, or because it’s just where we grew up and we refuse to leave our home.
In any case, knowing what to do when an earthquake occurs will greatly minimize your risks, and increase the chances of survival for yourself, and those around you.
So let’s take a look at what you should do in an earthquake.
1. What to do in an earthquake
Earthquakes, as you are well aware, cause buildings to collapse, crumble and turn heavy objects into dangerous instruments that can trap you, injure you, or kill you.
That’s the primary effects of an earthquake, however, earthquakes also have secondary effects, such as:
- Causing fires
- Damaging roads and leaving you stranded or without exit points
- Cause tsunamis and flooding
- Cause the shutdown of many integral systems such as water, the grid, and supplies such as food and medicine
During an earthquake, there is a very simple rule that people are taught, which is: drop, cover, and hold on. This is to ensure that whatever happens, you seek immediate protection during an earthquake. For instance:
- If you are in a vehicle when an earthquake occurs, pull over and stop in a space clear of trees, buildings, bridges and power lines. Do not drive through it.
- If you are in bed, stay in it and cover your head and neck with pillows.
- If you are outdoors, stay outdoors. Do not run to a building.
- Do not stand in a doorway. It will likely crumble and trap you.
- Do not run outside.
The motto: drop, cover, and hold on, is taught in schools and businesses in high-risk areas to ensure that people stay where they are and protect themselves in an earthquake.
The reason why authorities alert people to not running out of a building during an earthquake is that the greatest danger of an earthquake exists directly outside buildings, exterior walls, and exits to any establishment.
Research from the University of Washington shows that the majority of injuries and fatalities occur during an earthquake when people either:
- Run outside or to other rooms during shaking
- Standing in doorways
- Getting into a “triangle of life”
Doing these things will likely get you killed, so don’t do them.
2. Things you should do before an earthquake
Preparing for an earthquake largely revolves around the right knowledge of what to do. However, there are some things that you should do around the home to make sure there are less risks. This is especially the case if you live in one of the high-risk areas we pointed out at the beginning of this article.
So how can you prepare now, for something that you can’t predict will happen? Easy. Based on past research of what happens in earthquakes, there are a number of things you should do to prepare for the next one. They are:
- Secure large and loose objects in the family home that may cause injury to yourself or others. These would be things such as making sure your television set is secure, any large items on shelves are secure, and storing breakable glass items in lower shelves to minimize their chance of breaking.
- Create a communication plan for your family/friends. This would be simple things such as having a place to go to that’s away from the area (bug out location) alternative ways to get there, and an out-of-area contact.
- Practice the drop, cover, and hold on routine with your family and coworkers. Having at least one person in a group will ensure that anyone else around them will remain safe.
- Make sure your home and contents insurance covers damage caused during an earthquake.
- Get together supplies that you might need after the impact of an earthquake. We will look at this below in further detail.
Other ways to prepare your area
Other things you can do, that are more specific to your area or home, are:
- Be familiarized with the fire evacuation and earthquake plans for all of the buildings that you always occupy
- Choose a safe part in each room of your home, school or workplace. A safe place must be under a piece of furniture or against an interior wall away from bookcases, windows, or tall furniture that could fall on you.
- Ensure your home is strengthened and anchored to its foundation
- Secure a flashlight and sturdy shoes by each individual’s bed.
- Secure and maintain an emergency supply kit in an easy-to-access location
- Bolt and brace water heaters and gas appliances to wall studs
- Strengthen overhead light.
- Bolt bookcases, china cabinets and other tall furniture to wall studs
- Know your area’s seismic building standards and land use codes before starting a new construction
- Know how to shut off the gas valves in your home and keep a wrench-handy for that purpose
- Install strong latches or bolts on cabinets heavy and large items should be closest to the floor
When it comes to an earthquake survival kit, as mentioned, make sure it is in an easy to locate area. This might be a central part of the house that you can reach after an earthquake has happened. Now let’s look at what you should keep in a survival kit for earthquakes.
3. What to pack in an earthquake survival kit
So you’ve got yourself and anyone around you ready for an earthquake. But what do you need after an earthquake has happened?
The items we have recommended are basic prepper supplies that you can easily get on any budget. For the essentials, here are some items you should consider packing into an earthquake survival kit:
- Food to last at least three days for each person you have in your home
- Water to last at least three days for each person
- A flashlight with extra batteries for when the power goes out, as well as to assist in any search attempts through rubble, should the earthquake be destructive
- A fire extinguisher for any possible fires that may occur
- A whistle so that should you be trapped in a building, you don’t increase your thirst by yelling out and instead can make a high-pitched whistle sound for search parties and rescue dogs.
- Any medication you might need
- A power bank or battery pack for your phone to call for help
- A hand-crank (or battery powered) radio
- A first-aid kit to deal with any minor injuries
- Sanitation items for personal cleaning, hygiene, and of course toilet paper (you can also use toilet paper tablets)
- If you have any pets, consider their needs for water, food and a toy or mat for their comfort as well
Things that will help post-earthquake
There are some added extras you might want to consider, that while they might not be life-saving, can go a long way to helping you out. They are:
- Medical supplies (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, extra contact lenses, etc)
- Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers)
- Games and activities for children
- Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
- Two-way radios
- Extra set of car keys and house keys
- Manual can opener (especially if you’ve stocked tin food in your food supply)
- A multitool (should be an everyday carry item, but just in case, it will definitely help)
- A simple N95 breathing mask or dust mask for dust fibers and possible smoke
Maintaining your earthquake survival kit
After you have assembled your kit, it is also important to maintain it so that it is always ready when you need it. You can do this simply by:
- Keeping canned food in a cool, dry place
- Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers
- Replace expired items as needed
- Re-think your needs every year and update your kit as your family’s needs change.
Making sure you have an earthquake survival kit wherever you are
As we know, an earthquake can and does happen anywhere, at any time. Therefore, since you do not know where you will be when an emergency occurs, prepare supplies for home, work and the family car.
- Home: Make sure all family members know where the kit is kept. Keep this kit in a designated place and have it ready in case you have to leave your home quickly.
- Work: Be prepared to shelter at work for at least 24 hours. Your work kit should include food, water and other necessities like medicines, as well as comfortable walking shoes, stored in a “grab and go” case or bug out bag.
- Vehicle: In case you are stranded, keep a kit of emergency supplies in your car.
Now that we have the right essentials to increase our chances of survival after an earthquake, let’s take a look at what to do after an earthquake has occurred.
4. What to do after an earthquake has happened
Once an earthquake has occurred, there are a number of dangers and risks that might happen, depending upon the extremity and magnitude and the event that happened.
Just because the earthquake has happened, it is not over. There may be more earthquakes, a possible tsunami, or multiple other associated risks that you need to be wary of.
As a general response to an earthquake, the following points cover what you should do, post-event:
- Prepare and expect for potential aftershocks, landslides or even tsunamis. A tsunami or tidal wave is regularly produced after an earthquake in coastal areas
- Even if you felt aftershocks, still drop, cover and hold on. Aftershocks are little trembles that occur minutes, days, weeks even months after the “main tremble” or the earthquake
- Check yourself first to see if you have been injured and apply first-aid if needed. This is a priority before you help other injured or trapped people
- Put on a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, sturdy shoes and work gloves to protect against injury from broken objects.
- Look for damage in and around your home quickly. Check around your home and get everyone out if your home is unsafe.
- Search for, and extinguish, small fires. Fire is a common hazard after an earthquake and can become very bad, very quickly.
- Open your cabinet doors and closet carefully as contents may have shifted.
- Be watchful for broken gas lines or fallen power lines and stay out of damaged areas
- Stay away from damaged buildings.
- Help people who need special help such as infants, children and elderly or disabled.
- Keep animals under your direct control.
- Listen to a portable, battery-operated or hand-crank radio for updated emergency information and instructions.
- Check to telephones in your workplace in your home to see if you can still make a call. Make a brief calls to report life-threatening emergencies.
While these points cover what to do during an earthquake, preparation is the key to maximizing your chances of survival. This is why, ultimately, running through these easy points, and making some easy and generally free preparations, in life, will make sure that you suffer less, later, should an earthquake happen.
5. Anywhere, any time, without any warning
The danger is that earthquakes can happen at any time, without any warning. And although they may only last for less than one minute, there is no way to predict their strength or the after-effect of any possible flooding, fires, or other related hazards.
With the large number of earthquakes the United States experiences, it is that much more important that all of your family members, especially children, are well-versed in how to react correctly and quickly during an earthquake, and that you make the right preparations in advance for such an event.
It is not much to remember, but if you so remember these steps, you will be a lot safer when an earthquake hits.
Do you know about the gift of nature to save the life of people from various health problems and make them feel secure by curing significant issues? How to live healthy in this world without having chronic diseases or illness or any other health issues which may hurt you physically and mentally? Due to dense population, people are trying to demolish the forest, garden areas to create shelter, so they forced to destroy the nature’s gift such as natural ingredients, secret medicinal herbs and more which are grown in wild forest, mountains and other places. When you read this review entirely, sure you will get chance to know about secrets medicinal ingredients, herbs and more used by our ancestor to get back the lost health without losing your life. Claude Davis was highlighted all the stuff in the form of the e-book The Lost Book Of Remedies filled with a list of natural ingredients and remedies that you can quickly grow in the backyard or at free space to include it in your routine diet or external usage to get well soon.
