Earthquakes can happen to anyone and anywhere all over the world. If you think that you are safe because your country has an advanced warning system, you are wrong because earthquake can happen at any moment with devastating results. Among the other natural disasters, the earthquake is the scariest type. There had been a lot of countries that had suffered from an earthquake and it almost ruined everything around the city. If you really want to be safe, it is important that you are always prepared and you have survival supplies for you and your family.
You will never know when your country might get hit by a large magnitude of earthquake. It is also important that you know if your place or country is on the fault line of earthquake. If it is, then you need to be prepared at all times. An earthquake with a magnitude of 8 could already ruin a whole city in just a few minutes of shaking. A perfect example of the worst earthquake was the Haiti earthquake last 2010 where almost 316,000 people were found dead, 300,000 were injured and almost 1,000,000 people lost their homes and properties.
Things like this could also happen in your country and there is nothing you can do about it. No one can ever stop an earthquake, but people can at least be prepared when it happens. Almost every day, a mild earthquake happens beneath the earth and you cannot feel it because it is just minor, but when a large slip happens and it’s near the surface, then that is the time you feel the earthquake. If you were in a country that is located in the fault line, then you need to be prepared at all times.
