Japan, 11th March 2011. The greatest earthquake ever recorded in the country, measuring a whooping 8.9 degrees on the Richter scale, hit the country. Followed by a tsunami wave, it claimed a great number of lives, even in a country where citizens are used to such events.
As very many of us live in areas that are prone to seismic activity, it is useful to know what to do and what to have handy in case the next big one hits close to home. Are we prepared enough to take care of ourselves and our loved ones?
