In Light of Yesterdays 'Rocking' July 4th:

Melissa Motkin at Sepulveda Escrow wrote this handy Earthquake Preparedness Guide and we thought it might be especially important to remind all our readers. 

Stay Safe and Be Prepared!

4. Lock your house.
5. Use Travel Routes specified by local officials.
