Yes, I would like to tell my family about the catestrophe because earlier they get to know, they can make arrangements to face with the hardships. I would not mind losing my job for the sake of my family.

If I worked in a news room and they told me not to tell my family about the catastrophe or I would lose my job, then I would definitely let my family know what is going on. I want to protect my family from any harm. I can always get a new job later. Keeping a secret for a company is not worth risking the lives of your family. I don't think any company, even if it is government, put that kind of weight on a persons shoulder.
