Prepared for the next big quake? Ask a teen

People living on fault lines in Northern California have been warned about the destruction wrought by earthquakes. Teenagers’ aptitude with newer technology makes them more prepared than you’d think for a natural disaster. “In the wake of an earthquake, texts are the best way to get a hold of your loved ones since they use less data than phone calls… In that case, I guess teens do have a leg up in earthquake readiness. ‘Texting is the best way to get a message through.'” This story was featured on National Geographic and produced by Youth Radio.
