Living in North Vancouver, I don't sense some sort of urgency in the air, maybe a business just trying to cash in by providing a specific service.
I don't see why people need to go to a survival store. We can just go to any generic store to buy tents, fishing rods, knives, and power panels but
maybe the less experienced will need to go to a survival store for the advice.
We have coded two-three story houses that I'm fairly convinced will, in the majority of cases survive significant earthquakes.
Where will people run off to IF and that's a big if, if the big one hits and we are in a Hurricane-Katrina type situation where we are abandoned with
criminal or malevolent elements running around with unregistered assault rifles and shotguns.
I expect the troubles to not be concentrated around the lower mainland as most people have the means to evacuate elsewhere, but according to wikipedia
there are 2,524,113 people to deal with if a massive earthquake destroys plumbing, electrical and much physical structures.
We have the rockies, which is right next door to the north, Vancouver island to the west, Seattle to the south, drier, more arid areas to the east.
