CBS LOS ANGELES — Reporter Greg Mills visited a surplus store in Pomona to find out if people were getting ready for an emergency.

“I saw and they confirmed that they’ve had a never-endeding stream of customers seeking earthquake preparedness items since the big quake in Japan,” said Mills. One customer was concerned he didn’t have enough of the proper items on-hand to get his family of five safely through an extended disaster period.

The most popular items: Meals-Ready-To-Eat (MRE’s); 55 gallon barrels for water & first aid kits. Like so many other stores, they sell 3-day kits which are backpacks filled with water, non-perishable food, first aid items and a flashlight and cost about $60.
