Either way surviving natural disasters are hard, they are hard to decipher where your going to get hit, they are hard, when they pop up out of know where, but there are many things I’ve learned through my work through natural disasters to potentially help those who are out there. Lets start with story time.
During The Hurricane, A flat bottom boat holding two twin 250’s was screaming with the wind or gong with the peak of the waves…. (his wallet showed he was a crab fisherman in Alaska, ((Captains License)) Bystanders reported he started to make a 45 degree turn to the 130mph wind. When he realized he wasn’t going to miss the truck he made a quick 90 degree turn. With a 130 mph wind, and being fat bottom it skidded across the water, started to list and then airborne over the truck (with the witnesses.) the props according to the witnesses were running full spin. and the engines were hitting “rev max” (Im not a boater, terms don’t mean much to me. I do know a flat bottom boat holding twin 250’s would scream with a 130mph tail wind. Naturally the props broke off and started hitting people spreading people right left and center.
What does that have to do with hurricane preparedness? nothing… just don’t get your dumbass caught in one! Floridians ride them out because they are FloGrown. and the state is only a few hundred miles wide so its going to skip right over the state, and go into the gulf. or, like hurricane Irma run up the state, sadly due to poor forecasting the people ran from the storm to the place it was going. The state had not put into place legislation like Texas where a “State of Emergency” is declared prices on goods deemed quantified for life sustainment they can not raise prices. In fact they are going after three business’.
What do I do? If you have a natural disaster, leave, if you can. If you have to shelter in place, have survival blankets
