Can we do that in LA, Frisco, DC too? How much was out in the Northridge quake? Personally, I don't care if cell and internet are out. I have lots of radios and gen power at home and mobile. But others depend on it way too much. If you are not burned or buried, think a little and get your own escape plan going. Way too much reliance on others doing for you what you should do for yourself. Way too much reliance on Government help. ie New Orleans vs Des Moines floods. We have a society segment that thinks they have no personal responsability. let the natural order of things eliminate the stupid "I am entitled" lazy butts. I say save yourself and whom ever else you can. The government is never here to help, only clean up and over spend and get in the way. EAS is as efficient as TSA: never caught a terrorist, never used by the President. Its a relic form teh cold war CONELRAD

Interesting that you should say that.
I read the following just this week and mentioned
it on another list. No one responded.
This quote relates to the Chilean earthquake and
the official reaction:
"Officials admit that they made mistakes. The most serious was the national emergency office’s early assurance that there was no risk of a tsunami (it misplaced the quake’s epicentre as being on land). The government’s slow response and failure to maintain order were partly caused by its reliance not on old-fashioned radios, but on the internet and mobile telephonesboth of which were knocked out by a power failure. For the first seven hours the government thus had no information about conditions south of Santiago."
