Having been to CDC and doing contract work for them, this type of blog post captures the attention of those who are least prepared--the young. Older people remember blizzards lasting a week, wars, and other types of emergencies, and are usually prepared. The young figure they will run to Wal-Mart. Guess what? Wal-Mart runs out of emergency supplies quickly, which we learned last year needing flooding supplies. The so-called "Zombie Apocalypse" was all over the news in Miami I guess, after an incident with a man tripping on LSD who thought he was a zombie and tried to eat another person's face. Be prepared for whatever type of emergency occurs in your area is the real message. Whether it's tornado, hurricane, flood, blizzard, or whatever, it is YOUR job to take care of yourself. That's really all that is being said.
