Seem apt for this section.
What I found interesting and really wanted to share:
The amount of people panicking and phoning 911 for simply being without power and not being able to leave their homes due to flooding(why leave?!)
And it only took hours for them to get to that point.

Of course, some had valid reasons, fire, medical, disabled, ect. but 20,000 calls per hour couldn't of all been necessary.

Unfortunately the majority of people are I'll prepared for a 3-4hr emergency, let alone something that may last a few days or more.

This is why I always buy the house on high ground and keep a pantry of canned goods and those little green propane bottles I guess. I'm hoping to be out of Winnipeg before the next major flood...

There are people I have heard of thinking that being prepared for an emergency means making sure their phone/iPad is charged. :rolleyes:

People have been conditioned to believe that they can rely on govt. for everything , and need not to try and help themselves . I am just watching a show about the 9-11 plane crashes ; and people calling emergency services from the Trade Towers , and being ordered to stay where they are , rather than start walking down the stairs to safety . People did as they were ordered , and died ; while others refused to stay...and walked to safety on their own . People need to start thinking for themselves .....

That's because they're trying to line themselves up to be able to sue the state/city, make no mistake, this is ALL about money.
