Science, Technology, Linux, Earthquakes, Education, Geology, Nuclear. My retirement blog. I was a geophysics engineer with a big utility, doing earthquakes for Ontario.

Check your emergency kit this week
Nobody in Ontario is ever going to do anything about earthquakes, so it's up to the individual. This week, check your emergency kit. You should be able to survive 3 days without power, gas, or anybody coming in to save you. This is about what I expect for my larger earthquake scenario. Even the 'moderate earthquake scenario' has the power out for a week.
