We have had some very cold nights during the past few winters. After a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake, The Oregon Resilience Plan estimates that tens of thousands of buildings will be completely destroyed or damaged to the point that repair could take anywhere from months to years to complete, leaving many families to rely on alternative lodging.
Depending on the weather, you may be able to get a fire going to help stay warm. Having a fire is helpful for the light & food sections on this site, as well. If building an outdoor fire is not something you are accustomed to, add learning to build a fire to your preparedness plan! (Make sure there is not a burn ban in place when you practice!)
Here are some other ideas to help you and your family stay as warm & dry as possible.
