If there is a 6 meter wall of water coming to town and you know 3 days ahead of time, the only thing to do is go further in-land. Prepping still plays a role in mitigating the risk and danger of nature's worst disasters. A bugout bag for the family will give that family an advantage in beating last minute traffic. Some cash will give the family the opportunity to rent a hotel or a room in someone's house. Granted some countries are very poor, the basics don't change. The prepper will always be in a better position to save his family and then return to his house and help his neighbor. Of course, the entire country will not prep and there will always be casualties as is evident in the Philippines. But prepping is a family exercise, precisely to be put into practice when tshtf.

Something else that strikes me about these pictures. It might be a good idea to have a sturdy wagon or some other way to roll some belongings or injured family members out of a devastated area. I'm not sure what the best modern option would be.

In a disaster:
If you live in an area that's prone to Hurricanes, floods, and wildfires: First -FLEE- and bring CASH, documents, meds and your vehicle tank, better be full!
Tornadoes: Shelter in place, and have EXTRA food and water.
Earthquakes, or man made disasters: Prepare to shelter and flee.
What you all think?
