Major Earthquakes – Surviving After the Shaking Stops

Earthquakes, big ones that is, can kill a lot of people in short amount of time. As, big pieces of buildings, structures, power lines, and trees fall and dirt avalanches slide and bodies of water swish, humans find they are no match for Mother Nature. Once the major shaking stops, weakened structures are now at more risk for moderate to small lesser after-shocks, only wreaking psychological chaos, fear and the potential for more damage.

Coins For a Survivalist

In the event of an emergency it is extremely important that one have a tank full of gasoline, all the necessary survival equipment and a good supply of money prior to bugging out. This supply of money should include not just small bills such as ones, fives and tens but also a healthy amount of coins.

Lights Out – Not If You Have Emergency Power Restoration Plan

With another major hurricane battering the Gulf and Atlantic coasts come questions about electric power and restoration, generators, portable power plants, and other means of getting by. Whether it’s a hurricane, earthquake, heat wave, natural disaster, terrorism attack, or any other interruption to the electrical grid, it soon sinks in – “When will power be restored?” While the initial days with no power may be inconvenient – or even feel a bit adventurous in a way – it doesn’t take long before power restoration begins to become a major concern.

Hurricane Ike – A Painful Reminder

One can’t help but feel compassion for those who were the victims of Hurricane Katrina and now the victims of Hurricanes Ike and Gustav. Although many of us are distant from the realities faced by those living in hurricane-prone areas, with only the scenes on our television sets as a cruel reminder of Mother Nature’s capabilities, it is vital to our safety to prepare lest a natural disaster head our way.

First Aid is First

Everyone knows that safety is the most important thing the world. Adults panic especially when it comes to the wellbeing of the children. Since they are still unable to care for themselves, it is the job of the parents or guardian to look out for their welfare. It is also advisable that you keep first aid kits just to make sure. Having such kit within arm’s reach is the best thing you can do for the kids. Whenever they are bruised or wounded, at least you can tend to them faster rather than rummaging the house looking for a plaster and alcohol.

Hotel Safety During Fires

Knowing what to do, quickly and calmly, in case of a hotel fire could save your life. The following are guidelines on what to do in case of such situations: As soon as you check into a hotel or motel, go into the hallway and locate the nearest exits.

Emergency Preparedness and Lessons For All Who Own Public Accommodations

The various natural disasters of the last several years and most recently the floods and hurricanes present lessons to be learned. Those who own establishments for use by the public need to pay special attention to emergency preparedness. All of us need to do what we can to be prepared and those who host the public have even greater responsibility to be prepared.

Basic Tips For Storm Preparedness

Hurricane season has proven to be an active 2008 season. Even if you do not live in an area that can be directly impacted by a hurricane, you may be affected by the severe weather conditions that result from the storm. Because we are all affected by severe weather activity, we should be prepared when events take place.

Are You Financially Prepared For a Natural Disaster?

Natural disasters such as hurricanes can cause devastating damage. Hurricane season recently began on June 1 and runs through November 30. Experts at the NOAA Climate Predication Center are projecting a 65% chance that the Atlantic hurricane season will be above normal this year.

Can You Outrun a Tsunami

Try to imagine a solid block of ocean hundreds of miles long, 3 miles deep, and as wide as the coastline, coming toward you at 500 to 600 miles an hour. That describes a tsunami in deep water racing toward land. A tsunami rolling onshore is massive, powerful, and destroys everything in its path.

Earthquakes Keep the World Rocking

On average, an earthquake occurs somewhere in the world every 30 seconds. Most are in the 2.0 to 5.0 magnitude range, but destructive earthquakes in the 6.0 and higher range strike at the average rate of 3 per week. Most earthquakes are associated with the boundaries of tectonic plates. The majority of quakes occur on land, but some big ones happen deep below the ocean floor. It is these large undersea quakes that can start tsunamis.

Pets in Disaster and Being Prepared

Disasters can strike anywhere and anytime. What do you do with a pet during an evacuation mandate from a disaster area? Where you go and if your pet will be allowed to go with you must be something you have prearranged. Don’t wait until last minute to evacuate and have no idea where you will go.
