April is earthquake preparedness month. All month long we'll be focusing on earthquake preparedness. Did you know that the state of Utah did an earthquake impact study in 2015, for a 7.0 earthquake? The study shows the impact of a magnitude 7.0 earthquake centered in Salt Lake City, and the effects on the surrounding communities. See that tiny little red spot where we live, on the map below? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but we're in for a bumpy ride and at least a few weeks without utilities, grocery stores, gas, etc., so please prepare. Begin by storing water NOW, work on building up your 3-month supply of food storage, and then build up your 1-year supply of longer term food storage. Make an emergency plan and put together some emergency kits.
We know that when we are diligent and obedient in keeping the commandments, Heavenly Father can and will bless us with faith, strength, power, safety and peace. If we've done all we can to do as He asks, He will make up difference in all that we lack. What an incredible blessing!
