Measuring 6.3 on the Richter Scale, Haida Gwaii was shaken hard again this morning.
And as we were composing this release, two more struck, a 5.4 and a 5.2.
As with all these emergency situations, everyone must be prepared for the worst and hope for the best.
Batteries, portable radios, water, first aid supplies and food.
Be prepared to assist your neighbours as well. Some will not be prepared.
Although we depend on our emergency services, this may not be a reliable service. Their systems may be down and they may be engaged in more serious situations. Everyone must be prepared to survive without services of any sort for at least 48 hours.
