Hey, that photo is from my hometown!
I can pass on some easy tips the folks back home have learned. To see how severe it's been there, check these numbers: Magnitude, Last quake, Total numbers.

So the tips:
Tie a torch to your bed post. When all your stuff is in a pile on the floor, windows smashed, you don't want to have to go find a torch in bare feet.
Have lots of drinking water on hand.
Have lots of dried meals on hand (camping outlets sell good ones).
Have a camping gas cooker on hand. And gas!
Have something you can use as a toilet. A bunch of plastic bags that fit over the toilet bowl will work, but have a bucket, too, in case the bowl is smashed.
Have lots of pet food on hand.
Have an old-style phone that doesn't need power.
Make sure you can charge your cell phone through your car.
