The first nasty storm of the season is underway on the Oregon Coast. The wind is bending trees, and flooding is a possibility. I’m surprised the power is still on. Seaside, OR is expected to have gusts up to 80 miles per hour! Have a survival kit together, and an emergency plan for your family. Here’s a checklist of supplies to gather just in case of a disaster.
– Water (A gallon per person per day for a minimum of 3 days.)
– Fuel AKA gas for cooking, and dry wood for fire
– Food (Stores could close for days without electricity. Don’t buy perishable goods that need to be refrigerated. Think fruit.)
– Flashlights and headlamps with fresh batteries
– Shelter (It’s probably a good idea to stay inside, so you don’t get wet and sick.)
– Emergency Weather Radio
– Toys for kids, and treats for pets, because they will be scared in a super storm
– First Aid
– Gas (Fill up your vehicle in case there’s a rush for fuel, and you can’t get some later.)
– Books (Maybe ones on emergency planning. We don’t want you to lose your mind without TV.)
– Whistle to signal for help
– Multi-tool and Wrench to turn off water, etc.
– Moist wipes, and garbage bags for sanitation and personal hygiene
– Local maps
– Manual Can Opener
– Generator and/or solar charger for electrical devices
– Cash/Silver/Barter Items
– Rain Gear/Warm clothes
– Prescription Medications
– Lighter and waterproof matches
– Paper and Pen for notes, and more checklists
– Communications: Cell Phones with chargers, and two-way radios
With all or most of these things you should be good to go, and ready for a super storm bringing flooding. If you can think of any other handy items, please leave your suggestions in the comment section. Thanks, and wish us Oregonians good luck this weekend. It’s
going to be a wild one. Peace and love from Survival Bros.
Here’s a link to the live webcam in Seaside, OR on The Lanai at The Cove so you can checkout the current conditions.
There’s no flooding on Highway 101 right now, but high tide isn’t until this evening.
It looks like Highway 101 is starting to flood! Be careful out there.
