Being Prepared

The unfolding tragedy in Peru is literally right out of the pages of Catastrophic Abundance, where one of the scenarios presented was a post-earthquake situation.

Just another reminder here, in addition to building up your very own networked tribe, have an emergency kit ready. If your situation allows it, and you live in an earthquake zone, have water a food stored somewhere that will be accessible post-tremors. Bad engineering is your enemy here, so a small frame building of some sort might be a good storage place - something that you can dig through with relative ease.

If you have a few extra dollars, consider helping the Red Cross out on this one...
