Thinking of Japan

I have been watching with deep sadness the events in Japan.  I can't even imagine something that catastrophic happening here...but it could.  We live in Tornado Alley so that is our main threat.  We are not near the coast so we don't have to worry about tsunamis and we are on a hill, 
so flooding is not very likely.

Unfortunately if you lived near the coast, all the food storage in the world would not help you if it floated away.  However the majority of the country of Japan was not completely destroyed, but will no doubt feel the effects of this disaster.

 Food prices are going to sky rocket, if they can get any at all!  These residents are waiting in line for water just one day after the quake.  As you can see behind them their homes were not destroyed.  If a major disaster happened near you will you be waiting in line to get basic necessities 
for your family?
