Are You Prepared?

I happen to know that a massive earthquake will hit Southern California at 10 AM sharp on November 13, 2008. Here in the Burbank Public Library, patrons and librarians will be promptly evacuated after it hits.

While you'd be correct in thinking that I can't possibly know the future, I do know that we will experience the largest earthquake drill in US history. Millions of people and hundreds of schools, businesses, government offices and more will all come together when the "shaking" begins in order to prepare for the real thing. If you would like to register for this event, you can do so at The Great Southern California Shake Out website. There will be many events at numerous SoCal locations throughout the day.
