Earthquakes can and do happen all over the great state of Texas. Unlike other natural disasters that hit our state (severe weather including tornadoes, floods and ice), earthquakes are impossible to predict. The only time to prepare for an earthquake is now, before an earthquake occurs. Seven Steps to Earthquake Safety has suggestions on how to accomplish this. Also, sign up for Earthquake Notifications on the USGS site.
