Quiz: What Do You Know About Preparing for a Natural Disaster?
Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires are hitting in unexpected places
Technology has made it easier for people to prepare and respond during emergencies.
But its reliability depends on the steps a person takes before a disaster strikes. Severe weather — drought, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires and other extreme events — can put older adults in more danger than those younger because of a higher risk of chronic health conditions and less mobility. So having an emergency plan in place and knowing how to use your technology to help you stay informed is critical.
