4. When was this made?

In the first part, where evacuating all cities with populations over 250,000 (and I'm hoping I'm remembering that number correctly) is commanded, all I could think was, good luck to that. And a quick internet check shows there are about 80 such cities in this country. And good luck getting 100 miles away from Honolulu.

I do not know if I have ever seen signs for evacuation routes anywhere in the many places I've lived or visited. If they're there, they're well hidden.

If such warnings and advice were ever broadcast in this country there would be such mass chaos that no one would get anywhere. Plus, of course, the requirement to bring along a gallon of water per person for 14 days, and non-perishable food for that same length of time. I'm trying to imagine hiking to a bus stop with all that water. That's over 100 pounds of water.

Anyway, I did like the way this was done, and it is certainly food for thought as well as for questions.

Californians, because of ongoing earthquake potential, tend on average to be better apt to have emergency supplies than most of us, I suspect. And even then, I bet most of them don't have all that much.

Thank you for posting this.

5. They are lying about taking service animal.

NO animals will be allowed in those shelters. You can not take service animal into ANY kind of emergency shelter ( except animal shelters ) even now. If you are blind and have a guide dog and just escaped your abusive husband you will have to leave your guide dog outside and they might not even want you to leave it outside of the building. I have a friend who is blind and has knew a lady who needed an emergency shelter and they would not accept her dog or allow her to keep it outside of the building. It was winter and freezing. I will stay home and die with my animals.
