Know in advance how to turn off the water and gas to your house and keep the needed tools (wrench, etc.) in your emergency supply kit. One lesson we can immediately learn from the devastating earthquake in Japan of March 11, 2011 about how to survive an earthquake is that you should be prepared with some basic supplies in an earthquake survival kit to have on hand when an earthquake hits.
In order to survive an earthquake you should put together an earthquake survival kit in a backpack or bag of supplies that you can get to in a moments notice in an emergency situation that will contain an emergency supply of these vital needs in it.
This is a photo of one of the many pre-made commercial earthquake survival kits that are for sale at many online vendors. Your earthquake survival kit should include a tent or large tarp (or tarps) to use as a temporary shelter in case your home is destroyed.
You should choose foods that are dehydrated, will last for a long time as they may be stored for a long time in your earthquake survival kit, and are easy to prepare.

It is important to include cooking supplies in your earthquake survival kit so you can prepare the foods that you have packed.
Review the foods that you have packed and make sure that you have all of the utensils, cookware, and other cooking materials you might need to prepare them. If you or any member of your household takes any prescription or over-the-counter medications on a daily basis, you should include a 3-5 day supply of these medications in your earthquake survival kit. If you take insulin or blood pressure medications, this part of your earthquake survival kit could mean the difference between life and death. If you take over the counter medications like acid-reflux medications or allergy medicines, it may not be a life-saver, but will make your life a whole lot easier. Consider also including some other things in your emergency pack, depending on how much room you have left in your bag.

If you don't want it to be obvious, try making a mini kit or using just the stuff you need.
Proper shelter will increase your chances of survival, and lessens the risk of serious injury.
This article will help you make a very useful kit to solve any horrible situation from looks to hygiene to medical situations.
