As temperatures drop and snowfall increases, make sure you are prepared to handle winter storms and extreme cold weather. Tip: If you need to go outside, Ready.gov recommends that you “wear several layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing. The outer garments should be tightly woven and water repellent”

Two feet of water can carry away most vehicles (including many SUVs). In times of flooding, get off the road as quickly as possible.

+Leah Averett Take a look at this Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_storm_of_1859

This quote should reveal why your commodore 64 won't like such an event: "Telegraph systems all over Europe and North America failed, in some cases giving telegraph operators electric shocks."

Today marks the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake, which struck the Bay Area in 1989. If you find yourself inside during an earthquake, drop to the ground and take cover under a sturdy piece of furniture. Stay there until the shaking stops. If outside, stay there and move away from buildings, streetlights, and utility wires. More earthquake preparedness tips can be found here
