What are the things i should have at home. God forbid incase of>>>earthquakes ,?


You should have the following all kept in one location in a place in the house that you think is easiest to access without these supplies getting in the way:

1) An emergency suppy of fresh water - I keep 25 gallons.
2) Cash - in very small denominations $1 and $5 bills plus a few rolls of quarters. Minimum I would suggest is $200, but I keep $500
3) A supply of non-perishable food - canned, or dried food that you can re-hyrate with water. A least 1 weeks supply (I keep around 3 weeks)
4) A large first aid kit - they are relatively expensive, but in an emergency, indispensable
5) Best case - rechargable batteries with a small solar recharging station - if that's too expensive for you then a supply of regular batteries to fit a radio and flashlights
6) 1 flashlight per person in the house-hold
7) A battery, crank operated, or solar AM/FM radio
8) Matches (a small hibatchi style grill and some charcoal if you have room)
9) toilet paper
10) Toiletries - Soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste. Use purell for soap because you don't need water, which you will need to rigorously conserve.
11) A small tent with supplies needed for use (hammer & tent pegs and stuff like that.

Keep all these items together and separated (if possible) from your normal supplies. Organize them into carry bags or packpaks or something you can easily grab and go if you have to.

Some of these supplies you should duplicate in your car in case you are caught at work or somewhere other than home. Particularly - a small first aid kit, $100 in cash, and a six pack or two of water, flashlight and small portable radio.
I grew up in California and experienced several earthquakes. None was severe enough at my location to cause damage, but in the event of damage, the #1 thing you will need is water. The quake can break water mains and you will have to rely on whatever you have stored (or move out) until they fix the mains.
A generator
Camp stove with enough gas to run it
Camping utensils and cookware
An all weather band radio with plenty of batteries
Flashlights with plenty of batteries
Candles, lighters, matches
1 gallon of water per person for day for however many days it could be until power is restored
Non-perishable food that is easy to get into.
Toilet paper
Hand sanitizer
Handy wipes or wash yourself off with
Spare blankets and pillows
Changes of clothes
Photocopies of all IDs and other important papers, including insurance documents

Most of this stuff should be in a large tub that can be grabbed and taken with you in the event you have to evacuate

The worst thing about setting aside earthquake supplies is rotating the stock.

Plenty of water for each member of the household, enough to last at least 4 days.

Food rations, flashlight and a portable radio.
First Aid kit
Change of clothes

This is a barebones list. You want to keep your supplies in a protected area that hopefully will be accessible after a quake. Also know where the safest parts of your house are; stay away from windows and mirrors.

Know where your cutoff valve is for gas but don't shut it off unless you detect a leak, as it will take awhile for the gas co. to come turn it on again. Know where water and gas valves are too in case there are problems that necessitate shutting those services off.

This stuff is good for other emergencies as well. Thanks for the reminder to go out and check our box, I think my daughter raided the box recently.
Enough food and water to last your family for 7 days. And all your prescriptions and headache like aspirin.
Plenty of water, that is very important. Also batteries (if the energy is down) and a radio will help so you can follow the news on what is happening and what you need to do in order to stay safe.
There is a way even to stop the earthquakes that cause tsunami but ofcourse not totally but a little bit of vibration will be felt! Scientists have found out that growing trees near the shore of the sea { large amount of trees}.. will be helpful because the trees and plants hav the ability to absorb the vibration given out because of under sea earthquake which can cause tsunami! But during earthquakes on land u can do nothing but u can jus protect ur life by running out of the house and during wars u have to save ur skin by hiding urself in such a place like a underground storeroom a bit far away from tht of ur house! i think this bit of information was helpful for you! take care bye!
most things have been covered by people above.
Just wanna add:
store water and other essentials in an underground tank OUTSIDE the building if you can.
