Natural Disasters


After a disaster, local officials and relief workers will be on the scene, but they cannot reach everyone immediately. You could get help in hours, or it may take days. In the event of a widespread disaster it, most likely, would be days. You must plan ahead!
A winter storm could confine your family at home. A tornado, earthquake, flood, unpredicted wind storm, or other disaster could cut off basic services (gas, water, electricity, and telephone) for days.
