I am a day late, but it should be noted that yesterday was the anniversary of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, often called the "World Series" quake. Did major damage in the Bay Area, 63 dead, nearly 4000 injured.

There are ways to attach stuff to walls and floors as you suggest also.

And it is worth carrying quake insurance!! I recently added that to my policy, as I have a two story and I can see walls and foundations cracking and moving ~ in my imaginative mind!!


Has anyone seen the San Andreas fault line in the mountains between Bakersfield and Los Angeles? On one part of the mountain it has dropped about 30 or 40 feet leaving a sheer rising cliff. Compare that to some of cals coastal lands that run along the highway.

All we can do is hope it never happens again, because we do not deserve that.
Hmmm - so what would we have to do to deserve having a large earthquake occur?

Have we somehow made the plates mad at us?
