PREPARATION ON A BUDGET
While yes, it’s true that some areas of the U.S. are more likely to be struck by natural disasters than others, each area has its own unique risks that certainly won’t make them exempt. That’s not to mention that the threat of climate change creates more, more deadly, and more unusual natural disasters.
Then there are still other unlikely but possible scenarios: Tsunamis can affect New York City, volcanoes can affect the central plains, and really, asteroids are always a vague threat we can do nothing about. But it’s important to focus on the things we can do something about, what we can (and should) prepare for.
