Natural Disaster Preparedness

Natural Disaster Preparedness

Recent events have shown that preparedness is crucial for surviving a natural disaster. The most recent super storm that ripped along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States left death and destruction in its wake. Experts stated it was a once in a lifetime occurrence.

Citizens, local governments and the federal government alike were not prepared for the devastation because they used history as a template for future events. Therefore, the “once in a lifetime occurrence” can happen again because you cannot use history as an indication of future events. The storm has also shown that politics and bureaucracy played a role in the reaction time and recovery efforts of the government. The take away from all this is that you as a citizen may very well be on your own for days, weeks or even longer in the event of a natural disaster.

Surviving a Blizzard in a Car

Blizzards are usually forecasted well in advance but actual snowfall amounts and the impact the storm cannot be predicted with any accuracy. The experts are not able to predict precise snowfall amounts because a slight wind change or temperature increase can move the storm or alter the storms severity. This can cause an area to be blanketed in snow where the prediction was only for a mere dusting. The area where the storm was predicted to be the heaviest may receive the dusting. After this happens a few times, people tend to not believe and sometimes outright ignore the warnings, and thus do not properly prepare. Being prepared is especially important when you have to commute by vehicle in the winter months and preparations become even more important if you are planning an extended road trip.
