Disaster Prepredness Class #3

(This picture is just one of many scenes of Huricane Matthew's devestation to our area that I'll be sharing throughout this class.  I do not remember where I got this picture so I can't give credit.  I took many photos myself and others were shared with me so please understand if I can't give the proper credit for each photo I'll be sharing.)

I loved reading about your first ‘disaster day’ survival!   Looks like everyone purred through it without any trouble, things however, are going to get a bit more interesting today ….

You’ve got 2 feet of water standing in your yard, more in others and it’s still raining.  It’s been 48 hours since the storm started and it has finally moved out of your area but not before dumping plenty more rain onto an already saturated ground.  You can see that water has gotten into your neighbor’s house and you fear that yours will be next as there are warnings that the rivers have not crested yet and it will get worse.  You look down the road and see what was once a parked car being swept off the road by running water flowing over the road.  Before you can react, you hear a knock on the door and it is the sheriff telling you that you have to evacuate NOW due to rising water.   They will wait for and escort you and your family out of your house.  You have 15 minutes.  You are feeling overwhelmed and panicked!  What are you going to grab?  Where are you going to go?  How are you going to prevent the things you are carrying out of the house from getting wetWhat’s your weather like today, are you evacuating in cold weather, hot weather or mild weather? 

For those whose homes are situated on a hill or hillside above what 2 feet of water and continued rising of another possible 2 feet could reach, you do not have to evacuate but you do have to continue to deal with no electricity and being trapped on your property.  The same goes for those whose weather means they have snow or ice instead of rain?  How are you managing if you are staying put?  What does your day look like?  How are your resources holding up?  Are you running out of anything yet?
