The Times publishes for the first time “Unshakeable”, a comprehensive guide to earthquake preparedness




On Sunday, June 13, the Los Angeles Times will release “Unshaken,” a 24-page guide to preparing for the next big earthquake in Southern California.

The manual will consist of several components, including: a tutorial on how to assemble an earthquake toolkit; An article from seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones on the number one thing to prepare your home for a serious disaster; Preliminary writings on modifying your home and putting your finances in order; A guide to the apocalyptic pantry; A tutorial on what to do during and immediately after shaking; And much more.

“The idea behind the guide is that we’re due to be on ‘The Big One’ and we want Californians to be well prepared,” said Matt Ballinger, Times deputy editor of companion press.

On Saturday, an online companion section will be launched with added items, including a printable checklist to prepare for earthquakes and an updated database of area buildings in need of updating.

Additionally, a six-week pop-up newsletter that will debut on June 11 will serve as a step-by-step guide to earthquake preparedness and resilience. In a welcome note and introduction, Times columnist Pat Morrison wrote, “This newsletter is about preparing you for a close-up in the seismic story of Southern California.”

The Times also teamed up with KPCC for a free virtual event on June 24, titled “Local Matters: How to Survive the Big One”. A panel discussion will be attended by Morrison and Jones, Times earthquake reporter Rong-Gong Lin II, KPC science reporter Jacob Margulis, and KPC host Austin Cross to discuss the dangers and realities of living in an earthquake country.
