Hurricane survivors desperately want to return to their normal lives as soon as possible. Unfortunately, recovery from any damage whether it be physical, emotional or property, is a slow and difficult process. When facing a hurricane, it is essential to not only be prepared before it strikes, but to be educated on what to do after the storm is over.

I heard the hurricane thing in the states recently! It is a pity though I've never come up against the problem of hurricane.. I know American are strong-minded. U are going to survive this. Heroic at the worst starts over from the beginning by the success or failure life. Even if the worst comes to the worst, don't forget that you guys speak English so well, which is a powerful language in need all over the world. Thus, it is so easy to find a job anway, I guess!

Well Natural Disasters, people are never ready for them, coz they are too much busy in their own works and life. Once it strikes, even in some village or a city it doesnt matter to the people until they are in danger! This theory is wrong. I've been through earthquake, we were never ready for one, When it happened everyone was terrified for atleast 20 days due to the earthquake marking 8.0 in the Richter scale and after shocks lasting for months! After then as time passed by no one cared to build up earthquake resistant houses, Thats the main thing in humans They forget and thats where the natural disasters, not that hurtful, become Deadly! No precautions !

Insurance is very important. Most importantly though is personal responsibilty. You must take action, gather all the food and supplies neccesary for at least 2 weeks. First Aid, batteries, etc. Take care of your property. Board up windows, sandbag as much as possible. Pick up yard trash and anything that could be a projectile. EVACUATE if there is a mandatory evacuation. I was so pleased to see everyone in LA taking Gustav so seriously. They did a great job getting out. Luckliy.. they dodged a big bullet, most of the levees the Army has been building and rebuilding have held up. It is important to remember that these are safety precautuions that must be followed. We can only learn from the past... not predict the future. I just hope they will take seriously the next one to come their way.

All of us that have faced times like this have dealt with the highs and lows. Meaning we have went home to nothing but gas in the home, no home, somplace in between or we had no damage this time. I have lost most things sometimes and nothing others. We know to have all the essentials ready and on hand. To make sure we have generators, more water than they suggestm the same with food. And be prepared to help neighbors, friends, and people we don't know try to get some sort of life back on solid ground. I have been there, many of my family are still there. We do what we must and can.

Insurance is the key. If you live close enough to the coast either one build your home out of stone and make it storm proof or get home owners insurance.
