Default What would you do in a natural disaster

I know this has been talked about before but there are new people, dogs, and possibly updated plans.

I didn't want to take over the other thread with so thought I'd just make it.

In the last couple years I've been working with Yoshi. We've got to the point that when the storm radio alarm goes off *it's a freakishly loud tone before the announcement* She'll run straight to the door leading to the storm shelter and wait there. Once it's opened she's finally to the point she'll climb in and out of it on her own. I have a leash and a collar down there with copies of her vet papers.

I keep enough food and water for both of us for about a week and enough changes of clothes for the same amount of time. I have flashlights/batteries/a radio/first aid kit *human and dog*

I also have an old school nokia phone down there that I charge once a week and keep extra batteries for. Since it's amazing at finding and keeping the smallest signal which should be enough for me to call for help.

I have a couple places lined up that I could stay with Yoshi if it came down to it and a few friends who have offered to be a place to stay for both of us while I get everything figured out.

If those fall through I do have some money on file at the hotel where I stayed when my car broke down. They allow animals and I have prepaid a week and a half there in case of an emergency *natural disaster or otherwise*

Does anyone else have supplies/well thought out plans for if something happens and they need to evacuate the area/house is destroyed?
Thank you Vivien and Angel Chicken for the siggy! Also I have been frosted!!! And as of 9/13/07 I know the secret handshake!
