You never get it till you get it, the good thing is your still breathing so it's still fixable. I've lived through to many earthquakes, some I was prepared for and some I wasn't. Take that knowledge, don't loose your head and you'll be fine. Fix what you can fix right now.
Do you have a shelter you can go to, or a basement?

I'm thinking positive; we'll be fine, untouched. And once the danger passes, I'm driving to walmart that's 30 minutes away and spending a hundred dollars that I don't have but for this, money means NOTHING when it comes to surviving.
I plan on getting a bob that will hopefully weight between 30 and 50 lbs and hold at least:
food that won't go bad for months(preferably MRE's), bottled water, water purifying tablets, survival knife, pain relief, cash, hand warmers, hand can opener, portable water boiler, getting my gun card so I can own a weapon, laminated cards with our info and blood type, iodine tabs, vitamins, honey because it cures a lot surprisingly, wind up radio, and more. I"m going to now frantically search those topics here regarding what to buy.
Just goes to show, we read all we want, nod our heads - and then stuff happens and how far are we into actually taking action after reading and nodding? In my case, this is one brutal wake up call. I hope this is the only brutality to be had from this.
