Why Jayne was Prepared for the Fukushima Earthquake — 4 Comments

  1. Hi Mina — Thanks for writing. What Jayne found was that people in her town didn’t expect earthquakes and many weren’t prepared. I don’t think she was particularly prepared for radioactivity and that may be part of why they left and went to her in-laws’ town, specially with her pregnant. I really like your point that we should be prepared for whatever, not only disasters!

  2. In Japan, most people are prepared for earthquakes but I don’t think anyone had predicted what happened in Fukishima. Jayne had a guardian angel looking after her-I think!! I found Jayne’s Blog and have subscribed to it as it sounds like an interesting blog. I agree that we should all be prepared for not just for disasters but also for any thing else life throws at us.

  3. Wow! A good lesson on being prepared for a disaster! Here in Oregon, I’ve only experienced one tiny earthquake in the 17 years I’ve lived here, so it’s easy to become complacent and not think any big disaster could possibly hit. However, we are due for a very large earthquake to hit at some point, so it’s definitely better to be ready for it and not have it hit than to have it hit and not be ready. Very interesting blog post!
