  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Time for me to vent. I am so tired of reading post after post about the looting and the gun grab and this and that of what happened in New Orleans after Katrina. The "people" that stayed and did all the looting etc.. were and are the dregs of society, the lowest of the lows. All the normal...

    With the 2010 Hurricane season approaching, I wanted to take the time to remember Hurricane Ike. This video starts before Hurricane Ike makes landfall, and goes all the way to about 8 months later. Parts of the evacuation are shown, barricaded store fronts, the top of a pine tree on the roof...

    First off, this is not my experience I found this story on another forum... I found some people on here asking the question of "do I head to the hills and not return?" or "do I stay in the city?" or "do I temporarily relocate and then head back?". This story may offer some answers...

    This story belongs to nightshift. First of all, I could write a book on this but it would not sell enough to make it worth the time but I will make some posts and hit the "Lessons learned".
