Follow-up: If you had to leave your home, what would you carry with you?TOM NICHOLS | Retiree | Oklahoma
A: I work on my balance. You don’t feel good when the solid ground under you is shaking.
Fanny Pack: A bag of important stuff – cards, medication, a pair of scissors, magic marker, and a knife. That will get you through most stuff.
KAT MALDONADO | House cleaner | Shaver Lake
A: Remove all glass items from shelves and walls. I would have water purification tablets on hand for fresh water.
A Survivor: A backpack with two tin plates, a folding shovel, antibacterial hand gel, a solar blanket, and self-charging flashlight. Trail bars and jerky, bouillon cubes, and a piece of plastic (for catching water).
