Earthquakes are constantly rumbling some part of the Earth. If you live in areas like California or Alaska, earthquakes are everyday occurrences.

They're usually pretty mild, so you barely notice them. But when a huge earthquake, like the 1994 magnitude 6.7 Northridge earthquake in Los Angeles, causes billions of dollars in damage and deaths, you can't help but wonder how you can keep your family safe.

Let's just say it has some bugs to work out in the design department. It's currently hideous, and terrifying (see video next page).
