Sometimes disasters are unpredictable. When they strike, it is usually the unprepared that fare the worst. Even after the disaster has passed, most people still continue to grapple with the effects. Some communities are located in areas that predispose them to the most risk in crisis periods. While there is really nothing you can do about your location, there is a lot that can be done to help get you prepared for the inevitable.
