The midwest USA, South, North, Northwest, Western, Southwestern, and West coast are under severe weather (some form of tornadoes, damaging winds, hail, or winter weather alert).
Outbreaks like these are the MAIN REASON we all need severe weather preparations, plans, and supplies. Shelter, food, water, communications, transportation, and self defense. These basic needs MUST be met after any disaster…. which means a plan for each needs to be made and ready long before any actual disaster happens.
Same for earthquake preparation. SEVERAL of the preparations can overlap.. you can have your severe weather kits also with your earthquake preps… you need food, water, communications, transportation, and self defense for most any emergency. Shelter is a thing you must plan ahead.. but each scenario is different . For instance.. you don’t want an underground bomb shelter if a FLOOD is coming.
You want a sturdy shelter if damaging winds are coming. Whether below ground, or above — it must be strong enough to withstand approx 200mph winds!
These storms are NOT to be taken lightly.
