K.S. Rajan (30 Dec 2011)

New year’s resolution No. 1: Get prepared!
2012 promises to be a momentous, tumultuous year

Iran's going nuclear. ... North Korea is unstable. ... The U.S. border remains wide open. ... The economic crisis has criminals stripping copper wires from U.S. infrastructure. ... There's talk of an EMP attack that could set America back to the 19th century. ... Who knows what's next?

The devastating earthquakes, tsunamis, the coming sunstorm and nuclear disasters in Japan are still fresh in our minds. No one expected these calamities in Japan. And, one day, the world was turned upside-down for millions of people.

It could be a hurricane, a tornado or some other natural disaster.
