I was born and raised here in the eastbay area, Emeryville. In between Oakland and Berkeley. Can't say I feel very safe here but I inherited the family home and work as a nurse. With the economy it is very hard to make any moves so I just keep a bugout bag  for my son and myself and a full tank of gas. By the way is Marshall going to continue with the Blogtalk radio show? It seems to have dropped off the map.

Rosiegrrl - hello and welcome to the Town Hall !
You now have an "applaud" for making your first post here.
I'm glad you have a bugout bag and keep gas on hand... it is a good idea to try and get some land further inland and away from those liquefaction areas...
SF Bay will be very unstable if some big ones hit.
All the best,
Barbara Lou Townsend

I'm in Vacaville!  While I didn't feel any of these, they are here in my backyard.

I'm as prep'd as I can be.  Stay awake my friends.

i hear that!
suppose a mega quake hit the area.  delivery trucks may not have access to stores.  non-believers will be flocking to stores and emptying shelves, a few fist fights may break out, etc.  i think the majority of people would be in a panic trying to get supplies and not necessarily bugging out.... yet.  thoughts?
this is where i'd lay low and assess the situation.  i have a year's worth of MRE's in storage, in my apartment complex, which only one other trusted person knows about.  this is where i'm caught up on continuing going to work or not (hey, i need income and 3 days of absense is considered a voluntary quit).  i might lie and say i'm having a multiple sclerosis flare up and need to be out for a couple of weeks, apply for disability, etc. as this would buy more time to assess the situation.  if the damage is so bad that people begin to starve and shoot or seriously harm each other out of desperation, i'll pack up quietly and leave at night.
is that too risky?

Geez, what a tough call!!  And one alot of us will have to make probably sometime in the near future.  Is it time to leave yet???  I guess you are the only one who can make that tough decision, based on the facts and your intuition.   Personally, based on everything I'm hearing and seeing that's going on out there right now, if I were in your shoes, and had anyway to atleast take "a leave of absence, sick leave/disability", or even an unpaid vacation if at all possible, I think I would be giving all those options some really, really long and hard consideration right, right now, to be able to get out of dodge.  But only you know all the specifics for your particular situation.  Everybody needs to have income, unless you are fortunate enough to have enough savings until the disability pay would start or you get a new job in a location further east.  I've been worrying about you..please take care, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

enlightenme, thanks for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.  i'd love to take extended time off work but realistically, there'd only be two weeks or so to work with. i suppose the best thing to do, next to bugging out, is to stay alert.  does that mean it's now a matter of "how quickly can i bug out?" it feels intimidating.

BuddhaKitty that's great you have the MREs stored and that you are being aware. Do you know anyone inland with some land? We don't know for sure what will happen and when. For a long time now all the signs pointed to an escalation of earth changes... we have been in some sort of lull I think, for a few days. There was a 3 pointer off the Oregon coast again a couple days ago. A 5.0 off the coast of Japan again...also today a small quake in hawaii. The sun activity was flatlined, but is starting to pick up again just today. C1 class solar flare.
Well there's not much I can do at this point but continue to post info and events as they happen. We should all try to take a minute here and there to try and create the best thoughts of survival we can for one another...
Sincerely,
Yowbarb

I remember the last LA riots. I came home from work and went to the store to get some food and the shelves were empty.
Things were restocked a few days later and back to normal.
Too many people in the cities. Panic sets in and the system was never designed for everyone to go shopping on the same day.
If you wait until there fighting in the streets its too late. I remember seeing the fires at nights they were burning business and stores. There is no safety at night its worse at night.
If I still lived in LA and thought the shtf I would bug out quickly if I was headed to Arizona I would at least drive to Palm Springs listen to radio and news and rethink my situation if I left too soon I could go back.
The main thing for me is you have to get ahead of the masses leaving the city. The roads are like the stores they can't take that much traffic listen to what the guy said about Katrina it takes hours to move a few miles.
 Its like that saying when being chased by a hunger lion I only have to be able to run faster than you!
Hopefully people like us will see the signs share the information that should give us that critical 24 hour warning to move quickly.
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.

BuddhaKitty,
  While it's all only "opinions" they do have a value.  I would reconsider the route to Bishop.  The "South through the Valley" route would pass you through too many cities.  Here is my opinion and why...
From your location, East bound 92, East bound 80, 80/50 to Tahoe to 395 South.  This would reduce the concentration of persons suddenly scurrying for safety.  IF you leave soon enough this would be the most direct/safest route.

Hello,
I was living in L.A. too during the last riots. I went to my pharmacy that day to find the store front boarded up. Big pharmacy too, on Sunset Blvd near Western. I had taken my last pill and was out of luck. I went to the local hospital ER and the lady tried to give me a bad time (rare but it happens.) She said, well why did you wait til you had no pills left?! I said to her, "Well excuse me but I did not know there was going to be a riot today." They dispensed some pills to me to get me through the next couple of days until the drug store opened up again. (breathing.)
A couple of times I ended up in the ER when there were fires...either from a riot or a nearby fire. You could see the glow from the flames above Hollywood Hills, as I recall fire didn't cross over the top of the hills but lots of smoke in Hollywood and L.A. Something to think about the fires, from riots and natural causes too.
Some things to think about.

Its hard to describe the panic in the air. I worked in the mid Wilshire area I remember seeing Reginald Denny on the news being dragged from his truck the 3 guys beating the sh it out of him then while on his knees one guy took the fire extinguisher out of his truck and caved his face in.
I started driving to work with my 9mm on my lap. I was determined that if they drag me out of my truck I was going to take as many with me as I could.
There was a electronics store across the street from my building a truck load of men in the back they jumped out broke the windows ran inside and took everything of value. People screaming, watching it all happen in broad daylight. The police didn't come that day. Fires burned out of control fire department would not respond without a police escort.
The National Guard was called out to patrol the streets I remember seeing them walk down Wilshire Blvd ready for combat. Took days to return to some sense of normal.
What you see in the movies patrolling the streets of Baghdad and other countries can happen right here in your home town.
Prepare for the worst hope for the best.
Panic and fear can make you do stupid things, mental preparation is hard because we only see this in movies when you find you self in the middle of it you have to think straight.  Have a plan and follow it.
