Its such a simple title “Disaster Preparedness Pays Off in North Dakota”
This is not about people being prepared. This is about people benifitting from hospitals and business being prepared.
The paragraph is simple “The successful transfer of patients from MeritCare and other local facilities stands in sharp contrast with the chaotic hospital evacuations that took place after the flooding of New Orleans following hurricane Katrina in 2005.” Source: http://www.propublica.org/article/disaster-preparedness-pays-off-in-North-Dakota-20090331
If you are reading this then you have a computer. There are USB external hard drives under $100. These are great for making back up copies of your hard drive. Important papers can also be scanned in and saved on computer and hard drive.
While files can be saved to the internet but as Katrina showed it may be a while before internet connections are restored.
