2nd the emergency radio. My local public radio station (KQED in San Francisco) gives them out as a membership premium. Quite appropriate for earthquake country.
I also have a phone that requires no power beyond what is on the public switched telephone network even though I use my mobile almost exclusively. The PSTN has good backup for these situations. I have the cheapest metered usage plan. The ringer is off since only telemarketers call it. But it's there just in case. $14/month including fees and taxes but I find it good peace of mind.
Refreshing and organizing my emergency supplies was actually on my list of things to do this weekend. The earthquake and hurricane back east and the power outage reminded me I've been meaning to do it for awhile.
