    Re: Ok so we had an earthquake..how prepared are you?

    I usually carry a back pack emergency kit in my car since I commute between OC and LA several days a week. At home we have a large emergency duffel bag full of stuff. I've had both for more than 5 years, so I need to replace the food and water in them.
