Emergency Preparedness / Lessons learned from a Superstorm

Published on Nov 17, 2012

Lessons Learned From Superstorm Sandy. A little storm history and a few things I learned about prepping, during and after the hurricane.

Q. Would you be prepared if any 3 or 4 of these things happened. (It made me think about my state of preparedness) Since they all happened at once.

1 Neighborhoods were completely homeless.
2 People had no place to go.
3 People had no power.
4 Many vehicles were under water.
5 People were waiting in gas lines only to find gas rationing at the stations.
6 Relief help was nonexistent. The Federal Emergency Management Agency promised to get to victims as soon as possible. The Red Cross was delayed in giving help.
7 People were caught without shoes and had very little warm clothing.
8 Older people trapped in high-rise apartments with no power in the dark could not leave because of electrical wires broken and the threat of electrocution.
9 Subways, buses and public transportation were all shut down.
10 People were walking to get food and supplies.
