Prepare Now – FEMA Struggling Before Storm Season

Constant Water Can Take Care of Your Emergency Water Needs

A recent article highlights the limited FEMA resources and personnel available to respond during the coming hurricane season. Additional tasks, many associated with COVID and immigration, leave FEMA with just 28% of the 13,700 emergency responders available for response to a new disaster. We should all prepare now for the coming storm season.

Another “Above Normal” Hurricane Season

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is predicting the 6th consecutive above normal hurricane season.  While we might be quick to brush this aside with a “they always say that”, a review of the past 5 seasons shows they were correct. The climate has been more unstable, and the damage has been significant.

Winter Damage May Create More Summer Damage

The big “southern freeze” in February did considerable damage to the public water infrastructures in Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Many were without water for days or weeks as a result.  But how many more water lines were weakened by the freeze may not be known until drought conditions during with the summer warming.

Our aging water infrastructure does not respond well to changes in ground pressure. As the ground around public water mains dries out, the water mains can expand and break. Several years ago, Houston experienced hundreds of daily water main breaks due to this contraction of the soil from around the major pipes. Pipes weakened by the big freeze may fail during the coming “big warm.”


We Simply Have to Prepare Better and Earlier

– Do you have emergency water on hand now?
– Do you have enough?
– Will you be able to get emergency water?
– Will you be able to carry buckets of water from your sink or tub?

During a disaster, water is the single most important commodity—Water is critical for consumption, sanitation, and hygiene. The changing climate, more frequent and severe storms, COVID, and even increasing ransomware attacks all tell us we should be better prepared and be more self-reliant against growing threats.

Last year, much of the Gulf coast was hit with multiple storms and some in rapid succession. For many, they hadn’t even recovered from the one storm before the next one hit.

Panic buying during COVID showed us how quickly store shelves can be emptied, leaving us with out even basic disaster needs. There are shortages of lumber for preparation and the costs of lumber are skyrocketing. Prepare for the coming storms, and start now.
