    Preparing for natural disasters is necessary in order to survive. So what is the number one natural disaster? Flooding; according to Floodsmart.gov. Although many people turn down the option to purchase flood insurance, many people have no clue what to do in a flood scenario. So what are your options to protect your home from flooding? Sandbags? Check out this Texas man’s solution:


    What are your thoughts? Any better cheaper solutions out there?

    If flood waters ever reach our front gate, then all the cities in Australia will be totally submerged.

    So is this widely known in Australia? That is terrifying!

    I wanted to see if there were any cities in the US that this could happen to. I found this older article (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/26/global-warming-flooding_n_3799019.html) that says there are 14 cities that could be lost to global warming and I used to live in or near 3 of them!! How did I not know this? How much of the populations in these low lying areas are oblivious to this fact?
