"Nowadays, disasters don't always come with advanced warning. Weather related disasters like hurricanes seldom provide more than a few days notice, and even then, predictions of severity often miss the mark. Planning is the key to not only surviving, but minimizing impact."
A survey of 2,000 Americans by the GE Foundation found that 64 percent of families don't have a disaster survival plan. The survey also found that different regions of the country were more or less prepared than others.
West – 45% prepared
South – 39% prepared
East– 34% prepared
Midwest – 30% prepared
