Californian's or West Coast people out there that carry a supplies daily just in case?
We do keep bug out kit in the vehicles and one major one by the door. it is just that there are so may scenarios that it could take.
We are only a mile from the ocean and we are in a low lying area that has swamp all the way to us. if there was the big off shore underwater slide
that has happened off our shore in ancient times as they say ...over due...then we have about 5 minuets and there is no UP hill that close. BYE
The roads out are prone to slides even without a big quake so I figure they would be blocked.
If there were a break in the San Andrea's all the way to us it could take many forms, our mobile could fall off the foundation, it could cause a wave.
If there were a huge quake in Wa state could cause a wave and we may have time to get to high ground. We can't afford to move and my husband works
down in the harbor Brookings 30 mins from home.
To many ifs to worry over and it could be long after we are gone like my Granny.
My daughter lives right by Mt lassen CA my sister lives right by an active volcano in Ak. My son is near Yellowstone...really where is 'safe". Oregon
was 2/3 built by one lava flow it is nothing but volcanos. The new underwater one off Bandon Or erupted in April again.
