California is earthquake country. Dr. Matt Springer of UCSF shares valuable insights into how we can prepare now for our next big shake. Dr. Springer illustrates precautionary measures we can take at home to protect ourselves and our families from the effects of a major earthquake. [Clarification from Dr. Springer on LIQUEFACTION as presented in this program: Please note that liquefaction is not merely rearrangement of soft soils, but actually involves water in these soils that reacts to being compressed by increasing water pressure, temporarily forcing apart the soil particles and allowing the ground to behave like a liquid.] (#18193)
