If there are tornado warnings or even a watch for funnel clouds, I am out there checking out the sky to see if I can see any!
I still am not sure about earth quakes though. Once a tornado is done, there aren't usually little tornados that come in behind it, unlike earthquakes.
LA girls are you ok

Yari I would study the article Mandy posted, that falls in line with the most current info I've heard. I'm going to forward it on to my family/friends in CA.
And as for "the big one" they've been talking about that since I was a kid too! I thought the big one was the 7.1 in '89 but they say a bigger one is in store in Norcal, Socal too...all we can do is wait.

here's a website discrediting the triangle of life:
Triangle of Life - Earthquake Safety and You!
Here's ARTI's website with more information to support the triangle of life:
Welcome To American Rescue - American Rescue
Scary scary stuff. I guess the best thing you can do is make the best decision possible in the time of an earthquake then really pray.
