There has been talk of a "supervolcano" in Yellowstone and other parts of the world.

Here are a couple of good websites, International Volcanic Health Hazard Network, for how to deal with it and types of masks that work. :) There is a pamphlet you can print too. This is the kind of thing that is good to educate yourself on beforehand. ;)

Here in NE TX the only thing we don't prepare for daily is earthquakes. We get not only damage from Gulf Hurricanes, we get those fleeing them, so grocery supplies run low when evacuees come to town. Our bad weather season is actually fall, we do have bad spring storms, but since most of the fall ones are coming from the Gulf and sometimes even have a cold arctic blast ram into them right above us it's not unusual for a bad storm to stall right above us. Hurricane Ike came through, hit a system from the Rockies, bounced off and the wet stuff went east, the winds hung around and knocked our power out for 24 hours. We even got high winds from Katrina, but it was Rita that really did damage, it was still a tropical depression when it got up here, it rode the TX-LA border straight up.
We get snow, and sometimes we can actually measure it with a ruler, then it warms up and melts, then refreezes so it's the ice that concerns me.

I think my biggest weather challenge is keeping cold/allergy things on hand, it is not uncommon to have a 20 to 30 degree temperature change in less than 24 hours, add in all the pollen which we year round, and I've got a challenge on my hands.

Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish, which trumps Did Not Start.

Here in Hawaii we have earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and an active volcano. Because the islands are so far from everywhere, I worry most about us getting cut off from everyone else.

Here in the UP of Michigan, it's mostly snow storms that cause problems.

Of all the natural disasters we seem to have mostly have floods and power outages here in Central Pennsylvania. We did have a tornado go through nearby the other night - it was an F1 ... no biggie just some high winds and power outages - and you would have thought th eworld ended for some people. I think it is the ones we do not normally have that we need to be made more aware of.

Checking in from the Pacific NorthWest :)

We have:
Earthquakes
Flooding
Snow

I grew up in South Florida - so got used to getting prepared for the annual Hurricane season :)

It was strange to realize - when I moved out to this coast - that I Earthquakes didn't have a 'season' and that being prepared was a daily (not annual) exercise.

So I am curious the kinds of Natural Disasters this team is preparing for (I know there are other types of disasters but for this topic I'd like to focus on Natural Disasters)

I used to live in CA and there I was actually more worried about flooding and fires. (I didn't live near enough to a fault to worry about an earthquake).
Now I live in KY and I am worrying more about blizzards, tornado's, fires, and roads flooding (my home isn't in a flood area though)

What are you facing in the form of Natural Disasters?
