We live in earthquake country. Earthquakes WILL happen here! The entire Oxnard Plain is in a liquefaction zone. That means it will shake more here than if you were on solid rock.
You can significantly minimize injuries and property damage by taking a few minutes now to look around your home and your workplace. Secure anything that could move in an earthquake and hurt you.
The most important thing for you to do during an earthquake is DROP, COVER & HOLD ON!
