An earthquake near Chatsworth, California felt across a widely populated area this morning thankfully caused no loss of life, serious injury or signficant damage.
While Mother Nature tells us (in a not so subtle way) that we live in Earthquake Country, the men and women of your Los Angeles Fire Department remind you:
You Can't Predict... But You Can Prepare!
