Fire officials were on hand to remind the public of what a similar quake could mean for Southern California.
“A lot of people don’t realize that we are earthquake prone in California, but we also could get a tsunami,” Los Angeles County Fire Asst. Chief David Stone said. “We just haven’t had one in a long time.”
Residents were urged to prepare for a number of disaster scenarios, including how to cope for being at least “two weeks on your own”.
You mean that the police won’t protect the people? You mean people need to have medical supplies, food and water, and lights and batteries? You mean that preparing for a disaster – natural or man-made – is wise move? Oh, and by the way, California residents need to think about this while living in one of the most gun restrictive states in the country, maybe second now to New York or Illinois.
So who are you going to call when there is no power or police, and the inner city gangs are at your doorstep demanding your stuff, or your daughter?
