LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Disasters Expo USA was kicked off Wednesday in Southern California, focusing on the leading preparation, management, and recovery solutions for natural disasters.

The two-day expo is held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Orange County of Southern California amid the U.S. National Preparedness Month, which falls on September.
