Magnitude 9.0 earthquake. More than 22,000 dead. Damage price tag of $235 billion.
The 2011 Tohoku Earthquake (also referred to as the Great East Japanese Earthquake) that occurred on March 11, 2011 and the tsunami that followed devastated much of Japan, and it was the most expensive natural disaster in history.
Out of the tremendous devastation that followed, however, many important lessons were learned. We’ve highlighted some of the most important ones here so you can be armed with knowledge that will help you survive if a quake hits your region.
The Fukushima nuclear disaster was a devastating reminder about the power of earthquakes—as well as the damage that a nuclear meltdown can cause in just a matter of minutes. In response to the tragedy, the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) created a list of recommendations for securing our nuclear facilities using a three-tiered, prioritized schedule. Some of the agency’s recommendations were as follows:
TIER 1 To be started immediately:
TIER 2 To be initiated when further information is available:
TIER 3 To be addressed after tiers 1 and 2 are completed:

Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
You can walk into the wilderness armed with a simple knife on your hip, a bota bag of water, and a map leading to elk migration trails hand drawn by an Inuit chieftain… or you can buy an app, carry 60 pounds of gear and conquer the woods like a Mongolian Kahn. The kind of survival you want to do depends on your situation and your personal set of skills. If you have a match, use it to start a fire. If you don’t have a match, do you know how to make a fire anyway?
