I'm flying out there tonight, unfortunately no time for fun as I'll be spending a long day each at a site in Ontario and El Segundo.

What's the general anxiety level with you Californians then about earthquakes?

we've been under threat of a BIG ONE for as long as I've been alive.. worst one I was in was Northridge and a bunch of our stuff fell down but not much damage.. if you worry about this sort of stuff every day you'll die early.

The Big One is one of those things that people generally don't think about or even plan for in their day-to-day lives, even though Northern Californians are basically due to get hit with it any time now. I do know that we've had seismic retrofits in a lot of places in the Bay Area.

We maintain emergency kits. Other than that I dont really worry about it cuz whats the point.

Οὖτις, Wednesday, 31 December 2014 01:50 (two years ago) Permalink

I'm a little nervous about the big one hitting bc our duplex was built in 1919 and it's two stories. it survived northridge I guess. I try to be prepared but I also don't think about it. Everyone I know assumes a 7.0 will hit sooner rather than later but then again we all might be mouldering away dead for years before it occurs. Who knows?

There was an article in the latimes about how the water system will break into a million pieces once a big quake hits. Really should have water on hand. =\

I used to think abt quakes more when I worked on the top floor of an old building on spring st in downtown. not sure if one of those big lads would collapse in a quake but a lot of the facades would drop right down onto the streets and sidewalks.

i would have second and third thoughts about moving to california for this very reason. although these days i probably should be just as worried about the eastern seaboard. basically my plan to buy up land in michigan's upper peninsula really ought to be taking shape by now.
