Yes...this was a real wake up reminder to be prepared.

In Alamo as I am sure in Danville the earthquake was a slow and gentle roll. Nothing like what the Napa region experienced. I hear people in Danville and yes even in Alamo telling others that it was so bad that it almost pushed them out of bed...what an imagination.

And I would like to remind Gov. Jerry Brown that the Office of Emergency Services does NOT belong to him. He should have said, "the office of emergency services etc. etc." NOT MY OFFICE OF EMERGENCY SERVICES. The OOES belong the the tax payers of California...NOT Jerry Brown.

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from Alamo
