I'm all set.  I've spent a lifetime preparing for it by living over 2,500 miles away from the area.

They should be consulting with Chile about how to deal with the destruction and disruptions of a major quake, but I don't expect much from a state that voted for Sarah Palin.

One of the more interesting tidbits about beer shortages from the 8.8 Chilean quake in 2010:

CCU (Compañía de Cervecerías Unidas) responded by increasing capacity of their plant in Temuco that did not suffer major damage during the earthquake and by importing beer from their factories in Argentina. 50 trucks with beer are reported to have reached Santiago from Argentina. In March 2010, ten CCU executives said that the country will not run out of beer and that within two to three months production levels would be normalized.

Chileans know how to prioritize in times of crisis.

Zasteva: Yes, we're ready!

Here in Charlottesville, Virginia we recently survived an earthquake much closer to us.

I think we can withstand one in Alaska.


That thing actually did some damage in Fairfax Co. and i didn't even feel it.

Ok fine, I will be the guy that points out that it would actually take a fairly destructive earthquake to knock over a patio chair. I'm not earthquakologist but I would hazard a guess that the average building would suffer quite significant damage before a patio chair would fall over.

/so why don't we make buildings out of patio chairs?

StrikitRich: My Dad was there during the 1964 Good Friday earthquake.  Story was he had was suffering from a really bad case of the flu and when woken by 'quake he thought it was just the illness and went back to sleep.  Somewhere there are slides of the damage and the trench caused by the fault movement.

True story.


I don't believe it.  No way are there slides of the damage and the trench.  That's just impossible.
