Once you have met your and your family's immediate needs after an earthquake, continue to follow the plan you prepared in advance (see Step 2). Use the information you put together in your disaster plan and the supplies you organized in your disaster kits. Sleeping bags and flashlights may be quite handy in the days or weeks after a major earthquake. Once you have recovered from the earthquake, go back to Step 1 and do the things you did not do before, or do them more thoroughly.
Once the earthquake is over, we will have to live with the risk of fire, the potential lack of utilities and basic services, and the certainty of aftershocks. Keep copies of essential documents, such as identification, insurance policies, and financial records, in a secure, waterproof container, and keep with your disaster supplies kits.

183 earthquakes of magnitude 3 or higher were reported in Oklahoma between October of 2013 and mid-April 0f 2014.  Up to 2008, the long term average was just 2 a year. Scientists are studying a possible correlation between the increasing use of deep injection wastewater wells used in connection with hydraulic fracturing in the oil and gas industry  and the increase in the frequency of earthquakes in Oklahoma and elsewhere.
A consortium of organizations from earthquake prone California has a seven step preparedness guide. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency has a downloadable game that can help families learn about earthquakes together. Earthquakes can and do occur in every one of the 50 states so the current situation in Oklahoma provides an opportunity to review our personal, family, institutional and business plans. Partner with EMA (select your state and drill down to find the local office) or Public Safety department to host an earthquake drill.
The EDEN network was alerted early Friday morning to the disaster and, as new reports were issued, the network was updated.


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is working in support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) who is the lead federal agency when responding to international disasters.
The first Catastrophic Events Team meeting was held in Memphis, TN January 26-28, 2011.  The team, supported by a special needs grant, began its work with a well-timed focus on earthquakes. The first afternoon of the team’s face-to-face meeting featured a trip to the Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI).
Most, if not all, state  Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOADs) do not have adequate, if any, catastrophic plans. I am convinced that developing Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COADs) is one of the most effective and efficient (low cost) ways to prepare our communities.
Hat’s off to the emergency managers from the eight states* who recently put together a Resource Allocation Workshop to plan for a New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) event. Observing the state, regional and national experts while they examined all 15 Emergency Support Functions showed that they have a mindset of 1) response and 2) “things.”  Maybe it was the nature of the scenario, but most of the discussions concentrated on response requirements for a major earthquake along the New Madrid fault line.
Tim Prather, Tennessee Point of Contact and several other EDEN delegates are also interested in earthquakes. Find out if your home or business is at risk for earthquakes, tsunamis, and related hazards.
Learn from what happened during the earthquake so you will be safer and recover more quickly next time.
Before the next earthquake, get together with your family or housemates to plan now what each person will do before, during and after. It is important to temperate the desire to plan for all contingencies with the practical need to perhaps carry the kit for some distance. When I checked the USGS site this week, there were 935 earthquakes recorded for the past eight days in the 48 conterminous states, Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Youth groups can focus on science (what causes earthquakes) and staying safe during an earthquake.
The most devastating of these was the Magnitude 8.9 earthquake off the east coast of Japan on March 11.


Gary Patterson, CERI Director, Education and Outreach and Brian Blake, Earthquake Program Director for the Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC) talked to us about the New Madrid Seismic Zone and the potential impact of a large earthquake or series of earthquakes along this fault line. As trusted leaders, volunteers can enhance the value of correct information and efforts in an effective and motivating manner in planning for and after a catastrophic event.  And, Extension has resources to help.
Leaders from the eight states said they are not prepared for a 7.7 magnitude earthquake in the New Madrid area. The Catastrophic Team meets late January in Memphis to begin the work of producing material for Extension educators.If you are interested in contributing ideas or content on earthquakes, please contact Tim. Earthquakes can occur everywhere in California which means all Californians live with an earthquake risk.
Those earthquakes in the conterminous (great word!) states occurred from California to Massachusetts. Adults can be shown how to taking steps to protect property and homes from an earthquake can actually be good practice for normal times. In addition to the shaking caused by earthquakes, other things can occur such as landslides, surface fault ruptures and liquefaction - all of which may cause injury or property damage. This workshop better enabled federal partners to hear states explain their capabilities and expectations, so that they can better plan for the provision of necessary support. In addition, some areas within California are vulnerable to tsunamis should an earthquake occur off the coast. CEA rates are based on the best available science for assessing earthquake risk and do not include any amount for profit.Not tied to government budgets. California's budget issues have no impact on the CEA's ability to pay its claims, because the CEA is a privately financed entity and receives no money through the state budget.Without earthquake insurance, the cost of any damage is your cost.
