how can individuals prepare for an earthquake?

could you explain and discribe =) im no good at geography

Answer #1

In areas that are prone to earthquakes, they make the buildings less rigid, so that they can shake like a jelly rather than cracking and falling down and trapping the residents.

Answer #7

Here are some things I would do if I lived in an area prone to earthquakes:

(a) Have a house with an extra strong roof that was not likely to collapse down onto the residents and bury them in rubble;

(b) Have a store of fresh water (the earthquake often disrupts water supplies;

(c) Have a diesel driven generator with fuel (the earthquake often disrupts mains electrical supplies);

(d) Have a stock of tinned foods (and a tin opener) that I never used except to replace old stock with new as they approached their use by date;

(e) Have a tent available for emergency shelter;

(f) Have a well stocked first aid kit;

(g) Have a general purpose “survival kit” (I have one of these anyway for when I am “back-packing” in open country / hostile territory ) including such things as metaldehyde solid fuel stove, mess tins, bivvy-bag, disposable waterproof poncho, snares, fishing lines hooks & weights, catapult, matches, flint & steel fire sparker, survival knife; yachtmans knife, razor blades, strong cord, needles & thread, safety pins, multi-tool, compass, cigarette lighter torch & spare batteries, water-purifying tablets, flexible saw, miniature first aid kit (plasters butterfly sutures etc), glucose tablets, candle, whistle, signaling mirror, lip-salve, carborundum knife-sharpening stone, plastic bags, condoms (great for carrying water in, and you never know when you might get lucky), waterproof notebook pen and pencil;

(h) Copy of “The SAS Survival Handbook” (John Wiseman);

Hope that lot gives you a few ideas.
