Oh great, now I need to do more shopping :)
We had the snow, the floods and now the quake? Sheesh.
Before the earthquake
Seismic experts say we can expect a major destructive earthquake in British Columbia. We don’t know when this will happen. But we do live in a region where some of the largest earthquakes in the world occur.
When an earthquake occurs, your first warning may be a swaying sensation if you’re in a building, a sudden noise or roar. Next, vibration, quickly followed by rolling up, down, sideways, rotating. It will be scary! It may last a few seconds or go on for a few minutes. The earth won’t open up and swallow you. But you could be hurt by breaking glass, falling objects, and heavy things bouncing around. Be prepared for aftershocks.
You can’t prevent an earthquake.
