It seems that the East Coast wasn't much better than those in N.O.L.A. when it came to disaster preparedness.
I was once a Boy Scout so I was taught to always be prepared.
Most public buildings were built to withstand enough damage to be classified as a designated Fallout Shelter (Just in case the Russians dropped the Big One on us - we were told.).
But as we become more and more dependant upon technology for our everyday lives we discover how tenuous our lives have become.
We learn that as our society becomes more technologically advanced that the same society loses many of the basic survival instincts many once thought were imbued upon birth.
