Getting Your Family Prepared for A Natural Disaster

Our family lives in Virginia, about an hour from the beach. While it does not happen all that often, there are times when tropical storms and hurricanes wreak havoc on our community. On August 23, 2011, we had a 5.9 magnitude earthquake 47 miles from our home. The floor literally MOVED. On August 27, 2011, our area was hit with Hurricane Irene that did billions of damage up and down the East Coast. Our family was not prepared for the earthquake (this isn’t California you know!) but we were prepared for the hurricane, as tropical storms and hurricanes are expected.
