Is Your Home Prepared For Earthquakes?

Written by
Is Your Home Prepared For Earthquakes?

If you live in Southern California (which if you’re reading the Menifee Buzz than we assume you do) than we’re sure you have been feeling the increases of earthquakes in our area. When an earthquake strikes some of us simply just pull out our phones and update our social networks, however, if you are a homeowner in Southern California than chances are that your reaction to earthquakes is more alarming… Or at least it should! Earthquakes have the ability to be devastating to your home and property and even a quick visual inspection might not be enough.

Earthquakes have a way of causing damages that can not be seen with the naked eye. More specifically, damages to the plumbing in your home, but there are ways to identify and prepare for these types of situations.Before any more earthquakes hit, homeowners and their family members should take the time to recognize and ensure that they know where the shut off valves to their water supply are located. Every house is different, but in newer homes there tend to be multiple types of shut offs to your water supply. Every home has a main shut off valve at your meter at the street that will shut off all the water to the home. 

Newer meters come equipped with a shut off handle, but older models will require a shut off key or a wrench to turn the valve. Other possible shut off valves in your home could be found where your main water supply comes into the home (normally located by the front door or in the garage) or a hot water shut off located at the top of your water heater. It is also important to know where your gas shut off is also located as well.While we’re on the topic of shut off valves, it is important to test the condition of your shut off valves. It is safe to say that many of the valves in your home are as old of the house and they do not get used very often. For this reason it’s a good idea to routinely check the condition of the valves by turning your valve off and on.

This is also a great way to check if your valves are still working as well. Some valves are more prone to fail than others, so make sure your valves are shutting of your water completely. If you have found that some of your valves have failed then we advise to replace them immediately before it’s too late.

Speed limit corrections to come on some Menifee streets

Menifee’s Public Works and Engineering department recently completed the city’s first speed survey to determine the “critical speed” on all major Menifee roads. The “critical speed” is defined as the speed at which 85 percent of the traffic is moving.Critical speed is used by traffic engineers to determine the correct speed limit on city streets, which is set to the nearest five mile-per-hour increment of the documented, certified critical speed.In order to enforce speed limits on city streets with radar or other electronic devices, speed studies must be completed every seven years to determine current and accurate critical speeds.

Speed limits must be updated based on speed study results and the approved speed limit (determined by critical speed) must be posted to be enforced.The recent adoption of the speed survey by Menifee City Council and the consequent changes to speed limits are certified as reasonable and safe for these street segments. Many existing posted speed limits remain unchanged. However, beginning early this summer there will be several newly posted speed limits, several speed limit increases and several speed limit reductions on Menifee streets.
