happening in the Juan de Fuca...it is a bit un-nerving that to the south/north there is a lot of activity.
I REALLY hate earthquakes. REALLY hate them.
With all of the slipage on the plates I am hoping it's just pressure being alieveated and that it's not a build up to something larger.
I know we're due for a biggie here on the Pacific North West - hopefully not until I move above sea level. Right now the area I live in is right at
sea level - Richmond is a giant flood plain built up with sand
The highest point in Vancouver is only 505 feet above sea level - my emergency plan has it factored in as it's within a 10 mile radius as a safe
spot. I have the first aid kit, the water, the power bars light, batteries and waterproof radio.
After the last quake we had several years ago (above 4) I figured it'd be a good idea to be prepared. It's a bit weird, preparing for a natural
disaster and keeping it in mind...when you never know "when" it might happen...can't be complacent I suppose
