In order to spread the message of preparedness, the U.S. government...
We've mentioned previously that it's essential to be prepared for natural disasters before they happen. Of course, depending on where you live and what the geographic conditions are, you may be prepared more for one type of disaster than another. Californians living near the San Andreas fault would be wise to prep for earthquakes, while those on the Gulf Coast should be ready for tropical storms and floods.
That said, we want to hear something from you, our readers—what type of natural disaster are you most prepared for? This information will help us know what topics to cover in the future, and what topics you're most interested in learning more about. So, please help us out by completing the poll below. (Submitting your location, age, and gender is optional.)
If the natural disaster you're most prepared for isn't listed here, post it in the comments or on our Facebook page.
