Like many natural disasters, earthquakes are only experienced in specific regions of the world. In the U.S. the state that first comes to mind is California. Also like other natural disasters, you don’t need to be in a “hot-spot” to understand how destructive they can be. If you live in a region that is even at moderate or low risk of experiencing an earthquake, it is important that you not only understand the dangers, but also how you can best be prepared in case the unthinkable happens. Luckily, the Center for Disease Control has a website dedicated to educating you on the A-B-Cs of earthquake preparedness. Source:
