Collections and Flood Waters, Fire and Other Natural Events.
June 16, 2008

Well, Iowa and Southern Wisconsin this past week have been hit very hard with rain, floods and wind.

Just time to reflect, perhaps, on collection storage.

Be aware of where your stuff is, is the bank vault in a building basement, in an old downtown by a river? Can it overflow? Or in a lower level of a house, like a basement. That location is good for tornado events, but bad for water events.

Security and safety of the items should of course come second to security and safety of family, but both need long term care.
