Fire and Flood
In the western mountains, huge fires gobble up acres and acres of forests along with homes and towns.
In the eastern gulf, tropical storms dump rain by the foot on coastal communities, spin off tornadoes and wash away beaches.
In the midwest and south, drought stalks the land, killing trees, cattle, and wildlife.
This is summer in the U.S. of A. The only variables are the exact locations where these events will strike and the people they will affect. For those who believe it cannot happen to them--grab a dose of reality.
Be prepared. Now. While you have the time to think about the things you would need to have with you if you must evacuate.
And if you have a couple spare dollars, donate to the charity of your choice. Those folks under the gun will need the help.
