Intriguing - Earthquake Prediction for N.America

Anyone see this predicition? It's all a-buzz with folks living on the Cascadian (N Cali through Oregon Coast and North..) or San Andreas (LA to San Fransico) Faults. Based on the earthquakes along the "Ring of Fire" in the past year, we may be due soon..... I guess we'll know by the end of the month

But, as always for those in earthquake country:
-Good thing to keep adequate emergency supplies of water/food
-Keep cash (credit card machines won't work without electricity)
-Keep stock of fresh batteries/flashlight/etc
-Keep gas tank no less than half full
-If separated from loved ones, have an emergency contact outside of the west coast (for us, it's my brother in Washington DC)
-Have a meeting place pre-arranged

(Of course, this is just the short list!) So what do you think?

It is a real threat and one really should have a plan. There is nothing like being prepared. We had to spend a few nights in our tt when there was a flood and power outage in our town. It was nice to be warm and have the generator and tv all set to go. This was in Jan in North Idaho and some people had to live in cold houses for the duration.

It's always good to be prepared. Here in Ontario we have from time to time, earthquakes magnitude 3 or 4, pretty small really. Here is something I experienced just before the "San Francisco" earthquake (Candle Stick Park, I think it was 1990 or so). We were at our cottage on Lake Huron, one of the Great Lakes. I was sitting near the living room window, looking out at the lake. I saw rocks exposed, which are normally covered in water. Then the water rushed in, slightly flooding the shore. Then it emptied out again, and rushed in again. It did this sloshing back and forth about 7 or 8 times, before settling down. The range in water depth was about 5 feet. It was quite "unreal". Well, guess what? Two days latter, the San Francisco earthquate hit. It just goes to show, there is inter-connection with these things. With Chile, and now Japan, what is next? Hmmm...

The concern for this part of the country is usually those dreaded East coast hurricanes. I guess everywhere something can get ya!
