If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. You can never be too prepared, because you never know what’s coming. Whether it’s the global pandemic, murder hornets (where’d they disappear to anyway?), economic collapse or natural disasters, there are safety measures you can take.
I’ll never forget the 4th of July 2019. And nor will the residents of Ridgecrest, CA where large earthquakes on back-to-back days rumbled more dramatically than the fireworks. Felt throughout Southern California, Magnitude 6.4 and 7.1 earthquakes occurred in Ridgecrest on July 4 and 5, 2019. We commemorate this one-year anniversary with stories of resilience.
Did you just feel an earthquake and want to figure out for yourself if it triggered a Jumpstart payment? Here’s how anyone can look this up:
A Magnitude 6.5 earthquake occurred early this morning, centered in a remote region of Nevada about 60 miles east of the California border. Light shaking was felt widely throughout the Central Valley of California and up to Reno, Nevada.
Aftershocks in the range of Magnitude 4 and 5 have been continuing to occur this morning.
Remember: when you start to feel shaking, Drop, Cover, and Hold On.
