My heart goes out to all that were in the path of hurricane Ian. I grew up in FL and have been through hurricanes many times. It’s about as close as you can get to TEOTWAWKI as you can get on a localized level. No power, no water, no internet, no phone service, no gasoline, roads are impassable, and your shelter may be unlivable. You have two options, try to walk out or wait for help. We never think about our cell phones or the internet not working. Having no communications is a major problem in a crisis. I saw a news cast this morning where the reporter asked people if they knew where to go for help and they answered no. This is when a battery powered radio would make all the difference. Anything from AM/FM, 2m ham, CB, or even a walkie talky. An addition to these would be a Bivy Stick. It works on the Sat-Phone Network and connects to your phone via Bluetooth. If people in Fort Myers had one of these, they could text friends and family to let them know they are okay and/or get help. The ability to communicate and coordinate with others during a disaster is crucial. You need to know where the members of your group are and if they need help. This is why each member of my group has a 2m hand-held radio, a Bivy Stick, and a solar panel to charge them. This disaster in FL makes me even more resolved to be prepared myself and encourage others to do the same. 73, Resident Prepper, out.
