"Even Bigger Quake Could Hit Midwest" is the title given by LiveScience Senior Editor, Robin Lloyd, at LiveScience.com for the editor's 4/18/08 article. Living where I do, I hadn't heard about the 5.2 earthquake the US's midwest experienced on Friday, April 18, 2008.
Apparently the coalescence of factors are raising concerns for scientists regarding this portion of the United States. So my question is: are you ready for any sudden event? If not, here is a quick suggestion. Make a list of priorities and activities you can take so that by three days from now, you are more prepared than you were just yesterday.
Remember, preparedness is a lifestyle, not a one time event. Don't feel badly if you're not perfectly prepared; just take it step by step. Little by little soon becomes a lot!
