  1. I have family living within a few miles of the San Andreas Fault. Their home is built to withstand many or most earthquakes. In addition, they have stored food and water in case of power outages. Their kitchen cabinets have latches on them to prevent the doors flying open. When the children were in school, the school had cell phone and relative's numbers to contact in case of emergency. Children practice earthquake drills in schools.

    Eventually, this area will experience a major earthquake.
