The video below is by Dutchsinse on Youtube. Please note, this stream is showing the past 48 hours of USGS reported earthquakes + the last 50 EMSC reported earthquakes internationally. (From the date initially reported — August 27, 2016)

No voice in this video unless a large earthquake strikes. Marker height off the globe = depth into the Earth. The feed may show double earthquakes in some locations due to both USGS + EMSC agencies reporting the events. When an earthquake strikes, you will hear a rumble, ding, and a bell toll. The bell will toll the number of times = to the earthquake which occurs. (example : M4.0 will ring 4 times).

  • Build an Earthquake Preparedness Kit. Plan. Always be one step ahead of danger.

A disaster supply kit is simply a collection of basic items your household may need in the event of an emergency. Try to assemble your kit well in advance of an emergency. You may have to evacuate at a moment’s notice and take essentials with you. You will probably not have time to search for the supplies you need or shop for them. You may need to survive on your own after an emergency. This means having your own food, water and other supplies in sufficient quantity to last for at least 2 weeks. Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster but they cannot reach everyone immediately. Additionally, basic services such as electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment and telephones may be cut off for days or even a week, or longer. Your supply kit should contain items to help you manage during these outages.

Being prepared means being equipped with the proper supplies you may need in the event of an emergency or disaster. Keep your supplies in an easy-to-carry emergency preparedness kit that you can use at home or take with you in case you must evacuate.
At a minimum, you should have the basic supplies listed below:

  • Water: one gallon per person, per day (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
  •  Food: non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items (3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home)
  •   Flashlight [Available on the Red Cross Store]
  •  Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible) [Available on the Red Cross Store]
  •  Extra batteries
  •  First aid kit
  •  Medications (7-day supply) and medical items
  •  Multi-purpose tool
  •  Sanitation and personal hygiene items
  •  Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies)
  •  Cell phone with chargers
  •  Family and emergency contact information
  •  Extra cash
  •  Emergency blanket
  •  Map(s) of the area

 Consider the needs of all family members and add supplies to your kit. Suggested items to help meet additional needs are:

  •  Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers)
  •  Games and activities for children
  •  Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl)
  •  Two-way radios
  •  Extra set of car keys and house keys
  •  Manual can opener

 Additional supplies to keep at home or in your survival kit based on the types of disasters common to your area:

  •  Whistle
  • Gas or surgical masks
  •  Matches
  •   Rain gear
  •  Towels/Wet Wipes
  •  Work gloves
