Glad you are all OK. Earthquakes are tough to predict. Usually there is little to no warning.

Yeah, if a disaster is coming, the odds of evacuating is probably nil. There aren't enough roads or highways for all of the people to use at the same time. Years ago, Houston Tx tried to evacuate in a orderly fashion by zip codes, if I remember right, and everyone tried to leave at the same time, causing the highways to turn into parking lots. Then people's cars started to run out of fuel on the roads making it even worse. Then the hurricane rolled in. Thus you have to leave early before everyone else panics in situations like this. Or after the panic is over, but the roads are likely to still be clogged though.
