Many of you here know that I live in southern Japan, well it's April 28 at 3:40 pm and we just had another quake. A 4.1 something. Now this quake shook my area (no damage as far as I know of), but it included Kumamoto, Nagasaki, Saga, Fukuoka, Oita and Yamaguchi. Its getting scary. I need to get a survival kit in the makings. Tell me what you would suggest. We live on the outskirts of the city here, but if things hit the fan, it could be very difficult to maintain stability here since many people are elderly, including the Ms and I.

OK, what should we have in the trunk of our car to survive for at least 30 days.

Thanks guys.

We have many members here who will come along and be very helpful. Hang in there and stay safe. I would be scared to death myself!

Canned food, toilet paper, water, something to store the used toilet paper in, soap to wash with. Stay safe.

ETA: This might sound weird but cigarettes. You can barter with cigarettes if people are desperate enough for one.

Your main concern is being indoors in a house that can collapse on you, which is why everybody is sleeping in a shelter or in their car. A few people have actually died from sleeping in their car due to DVT - deep vain/venous thrombosis.

Second concern is living in a mountainous area where there is the possibility of a landslide, especially if you are getting rain.

Water filtration system or ample water supply.
Ample food stores, canned foods and other non perishables. preferably that can be eaten without being cooked.
Portable Radio, Walkie talkie, flashlights, can opener, lighter and lighter fluid.
blankets/Tents/ Underground bunker if you have one.

An exit plan. Friend with a boat?

Soon we will go to the store to buy canned fish and about a gallon of water. Your idea of cigarettes holds a lot of truth, many people may not understand that, but I do. Soap, I didn't think of that. If you youtube, public baths in kumamoto earthquake, what you said is so true. Thanks, didn't think of that one.

I am seeing some 4 s and 5s now. Some are even low depth. None are causing news alerts. So have your stuff for blackouts and such.

That isn't just Japan. This has been the entire 'ring of fire' and more places for about a week.


As another member says "Stay hydrated my friends", and stock up on food amd firemstarters.

The sleeping in the car now has taken over 10 lives and hospitalized more then 40 (according to the news this afternoon). Yes, we live near the mountains and I mean near too, but a hill is pretty much in our backyard. And yes, yesterday brought in very hard rains with more landslides even blocking a major road. Thanks orakat

Well, this must be answered. We have people that can push help for this, do we not?

Alcohol would be another. Whiskey. Not only could it be a disinfectant but also it's good for bartering.

Yet, who knows? I am not sure how that works. Who knows how that works?

I'm not sure. If only people would keep replying in this thread, I wonder what would happen?

Best of luck and please stay safe out there.


Something tells me Japan won't be the only quake stricken area here soon. Ugh. The Earth is so beautiful but the geologic and atmospheric activity can get gnarly fast.
