Bad Internet problems today!  I am on my Backup Connection trying to figure out if the main connection is my problem or the ISP problem.

If I do not return...SAVE AS MANY AS YOU CAN!

RE

Using an Iranian ISP?

It appears to be the ISP.  Gotta watch my Bandwidth until this is resolved.

RE

Many ways gaming can be expensive. Bandwidth is just one of them.

It may be the gaming.  Not sure yet. Game works on the backup connection too.

Still on my backup connection (tethering through my cell phone).  Hope I can get a proper connection reestablished later today.  This really blows.

How to be prepared for when the next disaster hits Alaska
« Reply #874 on: December 03, 2019, 12:37:52 AM »
1 week, even 2 here in Alaska is total BULLSHIT! You need to be able to make it through the whole winter.  4 months minimum.

How to be prepared for when the next disaster hits Alaska

What do you keep in an emergency kit?

Jeremy Zidek, from the Alaska Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, packs a few things.

"It's those essential items that you're not going to be able to do without within the first 24-48 hours if you have to leave your home," Zidek said.

Food is just one of the things you need to have in a kit, ready to go the next time disaster strikes.

“In the Lower 48, they say that people should have enough supplies for three days," Zidek said. "Here in Alaska, we say seven or more, with two weeks really being the ideal, but seven is that minimum amount."

That includes one gallon of water per person, per day. Zidek also recommends an alternative indoor heat source but stay away from candles.

"With an earthquake, if you have a lot of candles lit around your house and you have a powerful aftershock, those candles can get knocked over," Zidek said.

You'll also want a portable radio with plenty of batteries to keep it going.

If something happens and you have to leave your house, you should consider having an evacuation kit ready, too.

"Water, food, critical documents, some small tools, tape, a first aid kit, any medications that you might use on a regular basis," Zidek says.

You can learn how to build your own kit and print out a checklist online.
