Lessons From An Indonesian Earthquake: The West Coast Needs To Be Prepared

    The magnitude 7.5 earthquake and tsunami that hit the Indonesian island of Sulawesi last week has so far racked up a known death toll of 1,350. Even though this earthquake occurred thousands of miles away, it should be taken as a lesson for those living on the West Coast.

    Authorities are still expecting the death toll from the Indonesian earthquake to climb much higher in the coming weeks as those living on the island of Sulawesi grapple with the aftermath of the disaster, according to King 5. But Washington state is expected to be hit with a far larger earthquake, a magnitude 9 off our coast at some point. That earthquake would likely come from the Cascadia Subduction Zone, which runs from northern California to southern British Columbia.  Not only would there be a large earthquake, but the resulting tsunami would be four times the height of the 20-foot waves that struck Sulawesi.

    Police are guarding shops against looters as people are desperately searching for food, fuel, and water. Officers initially took a lenient approach to survivors seizing basic goods, deputy national police chief Ari Dono Sukmanto said, but some people have since been arrested for stealing computers and cash, according to a report by the BBC.

    With all of the natural disasters causing untold devastation across the globe, many in danger zones are simply not prepared should something occur in their area. In fact, the United States as a whole lacks a “culture of preparedness” laying all their survival hopes on government responses to disasters rather than individually preparing so survival is much more likely.

    A magnitude 9 rupture on the Cascadia earthquake fault will likely cut all electricity, running water, and sewer services for weeks or even months afterward. Basic preparations to survive without power and running water should be a priority for those in the immediate disaster area.   Emergency shelter capacity will be limited, and not the best option, so if you can survive on your own, you’ll do yourself and those who have no other place to go a big favor.

    Those who have prepared even minimally fare much better in the aftermath of a natural disaster than those who do not. Take the time to at least have extra food and water on hand and understand how to save those items for consumption later.  Often people don’t think of preparing until after the disaster strikes, but by then, it’s too late.

    If you need a guide to help you get started on your journey of becoming prepared, The Prepper’s Blueprint is an excellent resource.  It expertly and simply lays out the details of how you can become prepared for any disaster, even if you are just beginning to prep for survival.

        Good! Have the chemtrail planes spray soap on them and give the commies a much needed bath!

        Good one Genuis, that about sums it up, they seem to going at this shit in The US year round. The environment is one of the biggest threats to survival on this planet. The chi-coms and other invading armies that are stationed here in the US is a big concern, but nothing to really worry about, the patriots will just shoot them and rid off their asses, but the environment, this is not something that is easy to handle. From what I was told is that the cabal purposely positioned people and built all the housing, businesses and manufacturing to then use the environmental destruction to wipe out population at will. You guy wonder why I keep getting attacked. Once you start to accept the reality of the real situation, you will notice that hypertension and blood pressure increases. Good luck everyone, we are facing and engineered mass extinction.

        HCKS.

        Good maybe the big wave of Ocean will was all the feces off the streets and sidewalks in San fran?

        Hopefully the left coast won’t listen and we can have a good old fashioned cleansing. After all, San Fran is still building skyscrapers on land known to be subject to liquefaction.
        So, don’t despair, there is hope yet for our country.

        Generally an American would rather purchase a 7th TV set for their their 3 bedroom home than spend a dime on preparation / survival.

        Television is the opiate of the masses. Imagine life without being told what to think, buy and do. People might actually start thinking for themselves and realize that they have been had by talking with each other. It’s not called the idiot box for nothing. Instead people remain enemies of their neighbors for miniscule differences. Millions of kings and queens ready for the funny farm.

        • Stuart

          Yep, you and Kevin2 are right. The “idiot box” label came about in the 1960’s I believe. Back then TV was genius compared to now. Just look at how comedy has degenerated from “Green Acres” or the “Beverly Hillbillies” to the continuous one line zingers today totally devoid of substance. Hell, even cartoons used to be intelligent. Now they’re just mindless and crude.
          My wife and I turned off our cable TV in June. We honestly haven’t missed it.
