Be honest, Cali having 3 earthquakes in less than a week freaked you out too. It definitely reminded me of the earthquake we had in 2001, not to mention the fact that the news loves to remind us that we’re (Seattle, WA) due for another one.
With that being said, a great man named Suga Free once said, “If you stay ready you ain’t got to get ready!” Below is a 72-hour Emergency Kit you should have in your home JUST IN CASE something does sneak up on us.

Don’t get me wrong, not trying to jinx anything here, I would love to be warned about natural disasters so I can fly across the country till it’s over, however. Life doesn’t work that way, so again, stay ready so you don’t have to get ready!
