Emergency Kit List

The huge 9.0 Magnitude earthquake hit the North part of Japan few days ago.  The after shock can still be felt in that area.  As you have seen on the news,  many people have died because of the massive Tsunami.  People who have survived this Tsunami, evacuated quickly to high hills or the top of the concrete buildings.

These situations always arise in a moments notice.  Although, we can not prevent the disaster, with a little forward thinking and planning, you can be a little better prepared if you ever find yourself in a similar natural disaster.  Try to keep an emergency kit in your car or close to your planned escape route so that you are able to grab it in a moments notice.
