Humans versus Nature

Some people just don't learn when it comes to nature's fury!  How many times are we going to see on the news people who continue to not heed the warnings of severe weather?  Inland flooding!  People continue to believe that their cars can turn into boats as they are determined to drive across a flooded road.  The result:  loss of life or the individual having to be rescued.  Here is a link to help educate on in-land flooding:

What percentage of our U.S. population still does not own an official NOAA weather radio?  This is the most essential item that "every" individual should purchase and have in their home no matter where they live.  Sure, we now receive emergency weather messages on our cell phones but cell phones don't always maintain strong signals and, without power, cannot be recharged.  Weather radios work on batteries and as long as you have a supply of batteries stocked, your good.  Here is the link to the SkyWarn Store where you can find numerous emergency prepardness items as well as official NOAA weather radios:

How about generators?  Another no-brainer.  Every person living in the U.S. should own an emergency generator for power outages.  It is one of the best investments you can make and you should also consider installing a "transfer switch" when you buy your generator.  Transfer switches are installed in your basement next to your main electrical panel and make it really easy and much safer to turn on power to your main appliances.  Here is a link to learning and purchasing a generator:

What percentage of our U.S. population don't have easy-reference emergency prepardness checklists available at home or business.  Here are some links to these checklists:
