  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Told to prepare to evaluate because of a nearby forest fire. It took 3 hours to get all valuables into the truck and moved to a safe ĺocation. I have far too many guns! :) Much different from a societal disaster, but certainly revealed areas for improvement. Would recommend it as an exercise...
  3. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I'm originally from Ozark County on the Arkansas border. The news out of there is frightening, bridges have been topped, and in at least one case destroyed, once thought too high for water to touch. Many major roads are closed indefinitely, but what worries me are all the little isolated...

    The spillway has broken due to erosion. Incoming water can't be let out fast enough, lake will be 100% full sometime Friday. The "emergency spillway" is just the lower side of the dam and has NEVER been tested. It could be real bad...

    Just stumbled upon on a cool a website and decided to share it with the community. It's a free audio course on how to survive different natural disasters: earthquakes, tsunamis, pandemics, etc. If you want you can take a look at it, below is the link. Again, it doesn't cost any money. Just...

    Here on the Gulf Coast of Texas, we are getting ready for the 2014 hurricane season which starts June 1. Got me to wondering: are we ready for this season? :confused: After spending time reading on this forum, I think I'm better prepared than in the past but, of course, there's always more...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I live in a valley surrounded by thick forested areas in northern California. For the last 2 months there have been several fires raging that have caused smoke to flow in our area. While that has been a minor inconvenience, it finally caused a neighboring town to get evacuated to ours. By...

    I got the idea for this thread after viewing some of the recent posts about Hurricane Irene. The general public takes a lot of things for granted: electricity, the ability to travel without disruption, being able to use cell phones/credit and debit cards, etc. What lessons have you learned...
  10. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    A local paper has a "question of the week" feature. this week the question was "are you ready in case of a natural disaster"? All three people answered no. :xeye: Once again, I'm reminded why this area gets grid lock whenever it snows more than 4". It is simply amazing how people give such...

    As some of you may know, my brothers house was flooded with 4 - 5 feet of water during hurricane Ike. Well, he has to have the mud and marsh reeds out by monday so the insurance guy can see the floor. If anyone has the spare time on friday or saturday, send me a PM and I will give you...
