    I know it’s not a big, sexy topic when it comes to prep. I’m wondering how many of you in tremorland buy earthquake insurance? I’m in relatively low-risk Norcal area (central valley), but still consider it. Read a guide I saw on a Facebook posted in a Facebook group that brings up good points about insurance: https://theprepared.com/guides/how-prepare-survive-earthquakes/

    Thoughts? Looking at you, my fellow west coasters.

    Yep, we’ve insured our homes. However, here are some precautions if you’re indoors and the earthquake hits.

    1. Drop down to the ground on your hands and knees. A strong enough quake will knock you over anyway.
    2. Cover your head. Crawl underneath a sturdy desk or solid dining room furniture for shelter. If no shelter is nearby, crawl next to an interior wall.
    3. Patiently wait until the quake calms.
    4. Avoid doorways. They don’t protect you from falling or flying objects.
