The U.S. Geological Survey is now reporting that a magnitude 1.7 earthquake hit the Philadelphia region late Friday, which may explain the widespread reports of a loud booming noise and houses shaking in Northeast Philadelphia.
Is your family prepared for the inevitable destructive earthquake? Preparedness experts recommend that area families be equipped to survive up to 72-hours without public services in case of emergency. The simplest way to meet this minimum requirement is with a 72-Hour Survival Kit which will meet your family’s food, water, shelter, first-aid, light, heat, sanitation and communication needs.
