Disasters and Emergencies

  • Solar storm vulnerability

    Solar storms from our sun normally produce only minor disquieting effects on Earth. But once in a while, large-scale events can happen. The largest on record, in 1859, caused minor damage as electrification of our society was just beginning. Such an event today would cost an estimated $1 trillion to $2 trillion the first year alone with a recovery time of 4 to 10 years. Hundreds of million people would be without power for extended amounts of time and would expose over 350 transformers to the risk of permanent damage. The lead time to replace such transformers is between 12 and 18 months!!! Can you start imagining the impacts on society for being without power for extended periods of time?

    If you want to know more about this threat, the following document is a good place to start:

  • Emergency preparedness

    We hear on the radio about emergencies and disasters all the time: power outages, floods, earthquakes, terrorist acts. If a disaster was to occur in your area, would you be able to be self-sufficient (food, water, heat, etc.) until emergency help arrives? We saw with Katrina that it took the government up to 1 week to get its act together. Could you last that long?

    Most safety experts recommend having on hand a 72-hour Emergency kit for each member of your family. Do a Google search on the keywords 72-hour kit or go to the following links:
