This is a clear reminder that there always is the BIG ONE just around the corner and we don't know when or where it is going to strike!
We have to be prepared and make sure to keep an earthquake kit in our home, car, and office. Water, Food, Good Shoes, and several hundred dollars cash are just a few essentials !! I put together my own kit years ago that I update once a year, throwing out expired items.

If you don't want to build a kit yourself, I recommend checking out this company Preppi. They make awesome earthquake kits that look as good as they are functional with everything you need for 72-hours after a quake.
