We felt a good jolt here in Southern California late this morning. No big damage, just a good shaking (well, more like a rolling, actually) but it seems timely to review some good resource links in case of earthquakes (and other natural disasters).
- First off, the USGS’s Earthquake Hazards Program. This site tracks all of the latest earthquakes worldwide. They also have some great preparedeness publications available.
- California Integrated Seismic Network. The California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN) is a partnership among federal, state, and university agencies involved in California earthquake monitoring.
- Earthquake Preparedness & Safety Resources. From the Earthquake Country Alliance. Documents available in a variety of languages.
- Disaster Preparedness Information. Lots of great information from the Red Cross, broken down into categories like seniors, children, pets, as well as basic preparedness.
- Red Cross Safe and Well website If disaster strikes, you can use this site to register yourself and your family as safe and well, or you can search for family members to make sure they are safe and well.
