When I was living and working in Florida I always kept a pretty stocked pantry of canned food and other non perishable items as well as water. I also kept a go bag in my car (I worked juvenile corrections at an outdoor camp so if a hurricane was coming, we'd have to evacuate 60 kids and not have time to run home).

What I found is a lot of locals kept a stock but would go to the store to top everything off. Hence the empty shelves.

Oh let's be fair, Rochard wasnt really wondering why people live along the entire east cost, but why they aren't better prepared.

I agree with him on this as someone from FL who has lived through countless hurricanes..

It always drives me crazy to see people buying everything under the sun when a storm is near. I can understand gas shortages because you really can't stock up on gas but food water shouldn't be a issue, yet every storm people run around like monkeys buying up everything in sight.

The other thing is plywood.. Its like ok, you've had your house in FL for 5 years and still haven't bought storm shutters?

Honestly, hurricanes dont really bug me that much. I'd much rather deal with hurricanes than fires, tornadoes, flash floods or earth quakes.

Hurricanes you know its coming a week away. You have plenty of time in most cases to get ready or get out.

In FL it's not a lot of risk of flooding. I mean sure certain areas will flood but it's not like houses under water flooding like you saw in New Orleans. Its usually just some streets and a bit of water inside some houses.

The wind doing damage is the biggest issues but FL building codes are pretty damn good as far as keeping roofs from getting ripped off. Also most older code buildings have survived hurricanes for years so if they are still standing today they will usually make it through any storm short of a Andrew direct hit.

why isn't everyone prepared for every eventuality? because we're human. why did puerto ricans live in puerto rico, you know, because of hurricanes? jtfc.


Judging people because they aren't as prepared as YOU think they should be for a hurricane up to and including why they even live there......well...

That comment makes me think you have never been through any kind of natural disaster. There is more to life than food and water.

the guy doesn't even know he lives in an earthquake zone with levee flooding issues and his plan is to raid the fridge before the food spoils. he'll never understand a generator.

I'll say it again: Motherfucking carbon filter and freeze-dried food!

If you do not currently own a carbon filter, go out and buy one! The good expedition models cost 4-figures, but they're worth it!

Also: When the apocalypse happens, boater trash will rule the world! And we'll also have clean drinking water!

The fridge is the first thing to go. If your power is going be out for long than 12 hours you eat what you can and the rest goes to waste. I learned that during my first earthquake when the power went out for three days.

We can live without power.

I am just south of Myrtle Beach. Publix closed at 2pm today. There was plenty of water and food left. All the domestic beer was gone though.

exactly

at the very least I'd go to the store to stock up on more beer to put in the fridge running on a generator. why wouldn't I?

you learned to eat all the food in the fridge the first day? Why wouldn't you have learned how to extend that food instead of gorging it down in a day of an emergency?

classic.

that's why an ultra quiet generator is so important. the riff raff won't hear it and come leeching food and water and batteries and charges and matches and toilet paper and on and on

Yes a lot of imported beer left. Looks like Corona was the favorite backup. Yes chip aisle and pop tarts/hostess was full. Was kind of surprised seeing people buying a lot of perishable foods.

Weekend news said we were in the direct path. Today they said just some rain and wind. I’ve lived through three hurricanes, one when I was at my folk’s house on Martha’s Vineyard. We came back becuse school started the next day. I still remember being locked in downstairs with my dog while parents were strapped in on the flying bridge. Ten foot waves against a fifty-foot boat. I grabbed my dog and laid on the couch, shaking and crying. Could have been worse but we were in someone’s wake. We’d have left earlier but it turned east and no warning but “ get out” from an island cop.

You can stock up if you have the space. We had no power for a week during one storm. Before computers, tv was entertaining or radio. No power? Nothing to do. No ice, warm soda, coffee but no milk.

Generator at home as dad was on oxygen and c-pap machine. I was in New Hampshire and invited my parents but they wanted to stay. Mom hated the generator due to the gas.

It’s easy to say “stock up” but there are things you can’t live without and buying more may be too costly. Some people may have no money for a motel or no vehicle to leave in. Or no money for water though one gallon a week from November to August won’t kill anyone. Landlords in rentals may be absent and tenants may be elderly and can’t put up plywood.

I’m not sure if this weakening hurricane will land here. Mom is home, recovering from major surgery, and physically can’t go down stairs and needs medication to live right now. I’m useless to help and am half-a-mile closer to a beach than she is. I’d be safer there but can’t get in. My fingers are crossed that it bypasses me and is just a small storm.

If it hits us on Yom Kippur, oy vey!

We decided to hunker down and ride the hurricane out. I've heard all of the warnings but decided I'm not evacuating.

20+ day Grand Canyon trip. No generator? No problem! Hell, I prefer coolerless, even. Cooler management can be a bitch. Not so much having the cooler, but packing the cooler in the order food is gonna be used becomes somewhat of a planning nightmare. Evaporation refrigeration is fucking badass! Screw the ice, just go with the wet burlap over the rocket box.

Question: How much tequila you got? Ya know, now we're talking the important shit!

Seriously though: Laughing at everyone talking generators up like they're fucking mandatory. Not gonna knock anyone who's got one. It's a great thing to have. Just sayin.

Sorry for confusion, a generator is smart prep, not mandatory. I'm laughing at everyone who thinks emergency preparedness is their Bear Grylls moment.

Best investment Ive ever made (plus it powers my ice shack in the winter)

Our grid here is not great, older neighborhood. We've lost power for up to 6 days before. While I keep mountain house etc on backup. The honda will run my fridge, freezer, tv, and a window AC unit I can throw in (wont power my central air) Burns about 2-4 gallons of gas every 24 hours.

My Onan 4000 (30A) takes about 9 gallons or a 1/4 tank of gas to run the AC for 4 hours. >.<

The central AC is around 4-5kW id rather not tax my generator with that. Ill run a window unit off it though to keep the place at a decent temp.

When I was growing up in New Zealand people would move from Wellington to Christchurch, because Wellington was seen as a much greater earth quake risk, so they went to the safer Christchurch where there was never earthquakes.

An earth quake in 2011 killed 185 people and injured several thousand and had more than 350 aftershocks in the first week.

.. in Christchurch ...

Not bad at all. 2+ gallons per hour seems super high to run your Coleman ac. But I'm more familiar with the Onan 7k though, for nonportable generators. Does that seem in range for you?

My god what are you talking about? Why do you need a fridge if you have non perishables? Leftovers?

I'm pretty sure civilization can do quite fine without a fridge for a few weeks if they have at least a basic store of non perishables at hand. Not even the fancy prepper meals either. Even a good store of sidekicks, soup and some canned goods can last you a good long time for low cost if we are talking survival here.

I'd like to think he has at least a very basic cook kit though...

there's plenty more a gen is for- lights. charging shit. living 7 days off everyready lanterns is dreadful.


why are people so intent on shorting themselves on prep? richard shows off his huge house and pyro guys and hummers and all those things he brags about but draws a line in the sand about decent food and prep supplies for his family. or even realizing he lives in an earthquake zone. The only people he is putting at risk in his need to win a gfy argument are his family.

all while pointing his finger at those in the hurricane's path for going to the store.

Hurricanes are a way of life down here...why not be comfortable while enduring the elements lol. If its an option and I already have a generator why the hell not? Should I not use my generator because I CAN live off beef jerky for a week? Or should I force myself to eat all my perishable foods prior to? I have around 20-30lbs of frozen meat at any given time...i cant eat that a week before a storm hits.

I like his "go" kits though. He threw some clothes and charging cords in a bag and called them "go" kits. Literally saved himself the 90 seconds it would take anyone to do that after they found out about an emergency situation. Congrats on saving yourself 90 seconds! You are now prepared for anything!

You don't seem to understand what a go kit is.

When we had the propane train fire here, they gave residents fifteen minutes to pack and leave. That sounds like a huge amount of time, right? Perhaps. But I was at home alone at the moment, and if I had to leave at that moment my daughter had been evacuated across town and my wife was at work - So suddenly I have to pack for three people. So now I have to pull out bags from two different rooms and pack for three people. We have two Android users and one iPhone user, so now I have hunt down chargers for our phones. Then we have laptops - Three different laptops, three different chargers, in three different locations... Two of them I have no idea where they are; The charger for my laptop is buried in my office closet because here at the house I use a base. You see where this is going? Now I have no idea what my wife would need for a week outside of the house. My kid - I have no idea where her unmentionables are so I would have ransack the kids room to find them. Then there is the dog, locking up the house....

If you told me I had to leave my house in the next sixty seconds, I can do it. Grab my lap top, lock the two doors that are open at this moment, grab my car keys, wallet, glasses, my go bag, boom, I'm gone.

The go bags have a bit more than a change of clothes and chargers. They also have my work boots (which I never wear), first aid kid, flash light, a list of emergency phone numbers, etc.

I would also recommend keeping a life straw in each of the bags, along with maybe some antibiotics. Also not sure if you need them in California, but in MN mine also has an emergency sleepingbag/blanket. My go bag weighs about 35lbs which isnt super light but it was heavier at one point.

Someone should post a thread of go bag contents. Would be interesting to see based off peoples climates/natural disasters in their area.
