Are you prepared for a natural disaster like Hurricanes, Tornados, Earthquakes, whatever is in your area?
What kinds of things do you have in your home?

This is a little beyond the money side but still a good thing to be ready for .

Praying everyone is safe on the East Coast.

I live in Tornado country. We have 72 hour bags and we evacuate when there is a tornado risk. We have a storm radio. We have an electric back up system that covers about 4 hours of electricity. All our important documents are in a binder ready to grab and go. We have a lot of stored water and food to prepare in any situation. We also get iced in the winter.

Are you prepared for a natural disaster like Hurricanes, Tornados, Earthquakes, whatever is in your area? I live in Arizona so we don't have any natural disasters. We have flood insurance, but that's it as we do not get hurricanes, tornados, or earthquakes. And even at that any earthquake etc damage would be covered by our homeowner's insurance. Actual emergency plans, etc we do not have because we do not have a need here.

What kinds of things do you have in your home? No need for natural disaster wise, since we don't have anything in our area, but we do have an emergency kit with first aid supplies.

This is a little beyond the money side but still a good thing to be ready for . Very true. When I lived in California we had an earthquake kit. Having been through the Northridge Quake though back in the 90's, it's really almost impossible to be prepared for that type of thing.

Meghan don't forget about fires and such although those might not be natural all the time.

We have a fireproof box that we can grab with our important paperwork, SSC, Will, birth and marriage certs.
We have candles, flashlights basics like that. Washington doesn't get many things, no hurricanes, or tornados. We have an occasional earthquake and once in a great while (31 years ago) we have a volcano erupt. We still have active ones in our area. But really that is hard to plan for a volcano erupting ya know .

No not prepared at all but after Hurrican Irene I plan to start getting better prepared. We only lost lights and had flashlights, candles, water, bread, and easy foods to munch on but luckily we were able to go to a friends house
