Assuring myself that the $30 I just spent would be priceless in the case of a disaster, I began to wonder whether others have made 'snicker-worthy' choices in disaster management- certainly more than me! It was this question that led me down the weird path of tsunami survival capsules- these inventions have seen a surge in recent years, and there is no shortage of models.
So read on- there is more than one way to survive a tsunami. However, I might advocate that the best preparation is instead having at least a week's worth (some say 3) of emergency supplies, medications, and food, as well as a first aid kit and tent or other shelter. If you live within the tsunami zone, consider asking friends outside of it (and nearby) if you can stash your items there. Choosing a central rendezvous point with loved ones and friends is always advised as well.
Check out my RESOURCES page for more information, or this page with information on building a disaster survival kit.
However, if you are feeling adventurous, you might also want to consider purchasing one of these 5 interesting modes of tsunami survival... I do have to ask though- what if you are swept away in it?
5) Mukilteo Survival Capsule
This capsule is designed to be sturdy enough to protect you from the tsunami and ensuing debris. This temporary shelter also comes with music, lights, air tanks, GPS and a toilet. My question is- how do you stay upright?
