Magnitude 6.0 Earthquake in Wells, Nevada

I actually felt the Wells quake this morning. People aren't used to quakes here in Utah. It's been over 10 years since I've lived in California where I felt plenty. I know it was a "wake-up call" for me. I need to bolt bookshelves to wall studs in my bedroom, and strap my water heater to the wall as well.

I have 72-hour kits, I have plenty of survival gear -- just need to go around the house and figure out what will fall in a quake, and what I can bolt down. At a CERT meeting I was told this is the most important thing you can do to prepare. Bolt stuff down!
