Temecula Region Rattled By 3.3 Magnitude Earthquake
On Saturday, a 3.3 magnitude earthquake rocked the Temecula region. The temblor was reported at 3:36 PM, 12 miles from Temecula.
This isn’t the first quake to rattle the area in the past 10 days – there have been two other earthquakes of a magnitude 3.0 or greater in close proximity.
If you live in Southern California, it’s important to take all earthquake preparations and precautions seriously.
To prepare for a major earthquake, you can take the following steps below to reduce your risk of injury, or even death.
Reduce Hazards: Repairing or removing hazards around your home and in your workplace can reduce your risk of injury or death during an earthquake. This includes securing large pieces of furniture and appliances, and checking for vulnerable areas around the space such as weak or faulting foundations, cracked foundations, and unreinforced walls. You’ll also want to know where your gas meter and water main are located and how to shut them off in the event of a gas leak or water main break.
Create a plan: Have an emergency disaster kit prepared and ready to go in your home and workspace. Pack enough food, water, and medication to last each person and pet in your household for at least three days. You’ll also want to plan out your evacuation roots and meeting places.
Now, more than ever, it’s important to be proactive about earthquake preparation and safety.
