It doesn't matter where a person lives in the US, there's always a risk of a catastrophe. Tornadoes happen in the Midwest, near the Atlantic ocean there are hurricanes, and lately, in California, it's fires and mudslides.
Disasters can take place anytime or anywhere, which is why it's vital we know what can take place near us. As we prepare and plan for potential survival scenarios we must keep in mind any likely scenario. Yes, there are precursors for potential events to come, but the truth is we don't know the exact time or place something could happen. This, of course, is minus the wildfire you can see glowing in the distance and looks like it is coming toward your home — better get out fast!
