Everything You Need To Know About Earthquake.

An earthquake is the sudden, rapid shaking of the earth, caused by the breaking and shifting of subterranean rock as it releases strain that has accumulated over a long time. Initial mild shaking may strengthen  and become extremely violent within seconds. Additional earthquakes, called aftershocks may follow the initial earthquake. 

Like any other disasters, we need to be prepared as much as we can for an earthquake. All 50 states and 5 U.S. territories are at some risk for earthquakes. The risk is higher in identified seismic zones including the San Andreas Fault in California, the Cascadia Subduction Zone in western Oregon and Washington and Alaska, the New Madrid Fault Zone spanning areas in Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky, and areas on the east coast including the mid-Atlantic, coastal South Carolina and New England.




The basic preventive measures for an earthquake is to be prepared with an individual earthquake kit as you could be outdoors when it occurs. If you are outdoors it is advisable to move away from buildings, streetlights and or any utility wires. If you are indoors, take cover under a sturdy table or sit back against an inner wall and cover your head and face with your arms. If you are in a moving vehicle, stay in the vehicle, do not stop under a bridge and any buildings.
