Not a good title at a time like this. You scared the crap out of me.
I was in the Landers quake.
Right at sunrise, 8 miles from epicenter (middle of nowhere, 29 Palms).
Change yer damn thread title.
Poor title. Good post.
You forgot weapons. In the scenario you describe there will be anarchy of some degree.
Yellowstone is not particularly overdue for anything, and there aren't the slightest indications of any impending caldera blast.
California my be just out of reach, but there may be a system of faults running from Yellowstone to the San Andreas Fault, which is the Bay Area.
There is no such system of faults.
The size of the Yellowstone volcano just might trigger volcanos in California.
Mt. Shasta is considered active (as is Mt. Rainier up in Washington State.
Shasta and Rainier are dormant, not active.
The highest peak in the continental United States is Mt. Whitney, another volcano in east central California.
Mt. Whitney is NOT a volcano.
Well... This guy is from my home town.
My parents took quite a few of these precautions when my brother and I were growing up. A large, fully stocked pantry helped quite a bit.
There's some good advice here for people who still live in California. Of course, some of these preparations are good no matter where you are.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!!
I think Texas Tech beating Cal 45-31 qualifies.
I just want to know two things. If a large earthquake hits California, who is authorized to declare it, "the big one".
And how many deaths are required for a disaster to be of "biblical proportions"? Thanks,
well, that's sort of what happens when lightning strikes a power line... OF curse, lightning will jump a power switch in its mad desire to fry your stuff...
(BTW, WRT this disaster as in all such cases, we should try to point out as quickly as possible that wimmen-n-minorities will be hardest hit.)
Wouldn't that truly be an environmentalist's nightmare, let alone everyone else's. Of course they would probably still tout the endangered species rhetoric in the midst of the disaster.
They would probably be overjoyed. We go back to living like Third World peasants.
