EP- Food storage/Earthquakes

Spread it around, don't put all your eggs literally, in one place. It needn't be far away, just around the property helps.


All over the UK we have mining subsidence/quakes and cavities collapse, sometimes suddenly, and it can take whole houses down.

I tried to reply about canning storage and quakes but I don't use stalkerbook, but this applies to all food storage - use supermarket corrugated boxes to prevent shock damage, cordage or bungees as suggested to keep it on the shelves & sleeve jars with thick paper or card to keep dark and prevent chipping/breakage.

Add layers between boxes, don't store on the floor - use wood pallets or low shelves, secure racking to the wall to help stabilize both.(Kids will climb!) Ensure racking or a shelf over your goods, to prevent damage from falling wreckage and especially dirty water entering - irrespective of whether you are above or below ground.

A plastic tarp sheet over it all saves a lot and keeps it away from potentially envious eyes...and make sure other vermin are kept out/dealt with. The deer ate all my apples this year, I didn't see that one coming!!

I'm not a prepper, just old-fashioned.
