Budget for a Disaster. 

No one ever wants to think about being in the middle of a disaster, but it's always important to be prepared. If you live in an area that is prone to earthquakes, it's especially important to budget for a potential disaster. Here are some tips on how to budget for an earthquake:

1. Have an emergency fund. This will be your first line of defense in case of an earthquake. Make sure to keep at least 3-6 months' worth of living expenses in a safe, liquid account.

2. Make a plan: Know what your priorities are in case of an earthquake. Make sure you have a plan for your family, your home, and your finances.

3. When it comes to budgeting for a disaster, it's important to think about both the immediate and long-term costs. While retrofitting your home for an earthquake may seem like a large expense, it's important to remember that the cost of repairs and rebuilding after a disaster can be much higher. Taking the time to prepare your home now can save you a lot of money and heartache later.

4. Budget for repairs: If your home is damaged in an earthquake, you'll need to budget for repairs. Make sure to set aside money each month so that you're prepared in case of an emergency.

4. Stay insured. Earthquake insurance can be expensive, but it's worth it to be prepared. Make sure you have a policy that covers damage to your home and possessions.
