Kentuckians Advised to Prepare for Earthquakes

Emergency leaders say that videos of the violent shaking caused by earthquakes hitting California are reminders that they can happen suddenly, so you should be prepared. Lexington Emergency Management Director John Bobel says if you think earthquakes can’t happen in Kentucky, think again.The strong earthquakes in California have caused fires to break out and has damaged buildings. California is used to earthquakes, but ones this big don’t happen as often. Bobel says that Kentuckians should be prepared in case there were an earthquake along the New Madrid fault. He says we certainly recommend that people have enough food, water, and other important supplies like medicines so that they can be self sustaining for at least three days.
