While we can’t stop a natural disaster from occurring, we can be more prepared in the case of an emergency. Along with water and flashlights, you should also be prepared for your health care.
You should complete all readiness actions before conditions deteriorate too much. Local authorities may or may not be able to provide information on what is happening and what you should do in an emergency. However, check the local TV or radio news for information or official instructions as they become available. If you're told to evacuate, seek shelter or medical treatment, do so immediately.
