Disaster Preparedness Class #4

(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.)

It's been 5 days since the storm came through and if you had to evacuate you've now been notified that everyone who lives in your neighborhood can go back home. 
Fortunately, you only had to be out of your home for 3 days. You are a bit apprehensive about what you are going to find. Once you’re back at home you discover that the water got up to your door but did not actually get in your house.

What is the first thing you’re going to do? There's still water standing in your yard. You still do not have any electricity and from the looks of your neighborhood, it may be awhile before you do. If it’s cold, how are you keeping warm? If it’s hot, how are you managing the heat? How are you feeling after being away from your home for 3 days? What are you going to feed your family for dinner?

If you did not have to evacuate, how are you doing? Have you settled into a daily 'disaster survival' routine?  What does it look like?

The 'new' has worn off of the situation and everyone just wants this whole thing to go away ... but it won't.  You have no choice but to continue on making the best choices you can with what you have on hand.  

She looketh well to the ways of her household … Proverbs 31:27
