Earlier this week, I found myself in a small New York hotel as it was hammered by hurricane Sandy. During a particularly violent blast of wind, the glass from a lobby window shattered and I thought, probably for the first time in my life, that a disaster emergency kit might not be a bad idea.
In fact, it might be a very good idea.
Climate change means weather extremes are becoming the “new normal,” so now that I’m safely back in Canada, I’m making one for my home.
Creating your own natural disaster emergency kit can be easy and cheap. Check out this graphical guide to creating your own.
