Charles Richter –father of the Richter Scale The Scale is Exponential – that means, each higher number is 10 times the strength. A 4 is 10 times as strong as a 3, a 5 is 100 times as strong as a 3, and a 6 is 1000 times as strong as a 3 and a 7 is 10,000 times as strong as a 3. On the Big Island, 3s are what we usually feel
Safety - Preparation Stocking up now on emergency supplies can add to your safety and comfort during and after an earthquake. Store enough supplies for at least 72 hours. Water: 1 gallon per person per day (a week's supply of water is preferable) Water purification kit First aid kit, freshly stocked First aid book Food Can opener (non-electric) Blankets or sleeping bags Portable radio, flashlight and spare batteries Essential medication Extra pair of eyeglasses Extra pair of house and car keys Fire extinguisher : A-B-C type Food, water and restraint (leash or carrier) for pets Cash and change Baby supplies: formula, bottle, pacifier, soap and baby powder, clothing, blankets, baby wipes, disposable diapers, canned food and juices.
Clorox and Water First let water stand until particles settle. Pour the clear water into an uncontaminated container and add Regular Clorox Bleach per the chart.* Mix well. Wait 30 min. 2 drops of Regular Clorox Bleach per quart of water 8 drops of Regular Clorox Bleach per gallon of water 1/2 teaspoon Regular Clorox Bleach per five gallons of water If water is cloudy, double the recommended dosages of Clorox Bleach. (Only use Regular Clorox Bleach (not Fresh Scent or Lemon Fresh). –To insure that Clorox Bleach is at its full strength, replace your storage bottle every three months.) –Keep an eyedropper taped to your emergency bottle of Clorox Bleach, since purifying small amounts of water requires only a few drops.
After an earthquake you will probably not have any power, so your perishable food won't last more than a few hours. You will need to store at least three days worth of non-perishable food for everyone in your family. Pick items which can be eaten at room temperature without preparation or cooking. If you are able to heat your food, be sure to cook it outside on a fire-proof surface, away from any hazards. When preparing your food supply, do not include salty food which can make you thirsty. Include items from all of the food groups. Store these items separate from your everyday food. Be sure to rotate your supply and check expiration dates. Canned goods usually have a one-year shelf life. Don't forget to include utensils, plates, bowls and cups. Before using fire to cook, make sure there are no gas leaks anywhere near your or in your neighborhood.

Large plastic trash bags for waste, tarps and rain ponchos Large trash cans Bar soap and liquid detergent Shampoo Toothpaste and toothbrushes Feminine hygiene supplies Toilet paper Household bleach
