Pandemic + Disaster. The Feds Aren't Ready, But You Can Be. Here's How.
 The Feds Aren’t Ready, But You Can Be. Here’s How.
The federal government has an emergency plan. So does your state, county, and town—probably even your HOA and church.

Nearly all of them share one major flaw: they’re designed for a single disaster. But what happens when two disasters hit at once? Like when a major hurricane lands in an area under quarantine for a pandemic?
“We haven't really done a deep dive [into this],” says Tricia Wachtendorf, director of the Disaster Research Center at the University of Delaware. “To think about, well, ‘What does this mean, in reality, if this happens?’”

“Unprecedented is the word,” says Becky DePodwin, a meteorologist and emergency-preparedness specialist at AccuWeather. “There’s no playbook for this.”

Welcome to the 2020 hurricane/tornado/wildfire/etc. season, a time when emergency systems already maxed out from the COVID-19 virus will extend beyond their limits to respond to the natural disasters that are guaranteed to hit.

You can bet this will be a topic of panic in the news but follow our advice and don’t get caught up in it. The world might get even more dangerous this summer and fall, but if you focus your preparations on a few simple thing, you’ll help keep your head above water while so many others are struggling to stay afloat.
