Todays tornado

Well I live one street over from today's tornado that struck Port Orange, neighbors have debris from the damaged homes in there yards.

Man, it was a wild ride. I was eating dinner while the winds blew all around my home. I did worry briefly about my ham radio tower (45ft tall then 12feet above that in antennas) but it has survived hurricanes for the last 7 years.

So this got me thinking more about how to be better prepared for these natural disasters. While we live in an area that is very prone to hurricanes so we understand. But I must admit that I have become complacent. So it is time to redraw family plans, emergency procedures, be stocked as to be self sufficient for a week, trim trees, and take out the generator and cycle the gas.

Are you up to date?

Preparation is the key. With hurricanes, you have days to prepare. For other disasters, you may have only minutes. I keep a small survival kit in each of my vehicles [blankets, first aid kit, bottled water, matches/lighter, etc]. The stuff lasts forever and its there if I need it. I also keep bug-out bags for my wife and I on hand. Just a couple of changes of clothes, personal toiletries, a bottle of water, prescription meds for three days, etc. You may never have to use any of this stuff, but it is simple and cheap to put together and it is nice to have if you need it.
