I live in an earthquake-prone area and I am always worrying about when the next one will strike. I live in the Seattle area, where there is lots of seismic activity. They say that the next really big earthquake will strike this area soon, according to science, so I want to be as prepared as possible.
I try to take many precautions in order to give myself the best preparedness should an earthquake strike. One thing I do is pay attention to my surroundings. I look for areas that have the highest elevation because those are the best places to go to avoid tsunami water. My earthquake emergency kit helps keep me prepared as well and I keep it in a handy place.
