How to do a Threat Analysis/Risks Assessment

Survival Gallery: Tsunamis

If you’re living in a coastal region, pay attention! Tsunamis can cause massive damage to low-lying coastal areas after an earthquake and in many cases cause much more damage then the initial earthquake itself. Together, an earthquake and tsunami is a devastating combo that has killed millions of people this century. As many of you will recall the most recent major tsunami was the one that damaged the Fukushima nuclear power plant and killed upwards of 28,000 people (not including those who died afterwards from indirect causes). There’s also the 2004 boxing day tsunami that killed around 500,000 people (higher estimate). We encourage all of you to go on YouTube and look up videos of these last two tsunamis or check out the gallery below so you can get a clear idea of what to expect if you happen to live near the coast.

Survival Gallery: Earthquakes

Although earthquakes only occur is certain areas, they can spawn tsunamis that can travel across entire oceans. Also keep in mind while viewing these images that when a significant earthquake occurs, the electrical grid will go down, water/sewage systems will be inoperable, and roads will be too damaged for emergency workers, shipments of food/water to arrive. Fortunately the vast majority of earthquakes are barely felt, but every so often (about once per year) a strong earthquake will and hit and as was the case with the December 2004 Asian earthquake; about 500 000 people died (directly from the initial disaster, and much more from the water born diseases, and chaos that ensued afterwards).

Below we’ve created an image gallery of looters so you know what to expect when SHTF.
