Storm - The Subtleties..

"There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in a storm" - Willa Cather.  We sure learn every year a lot of things from the number of storms we encounter. Technically, storms are a result of a low-pressure center is created surrounded by high-pressure ( Don't we all know about that)! 



A combination of opposing forces create winds and in turn, cumulonimbus is formed. Cumulonimbus just means heaped - rainstorm. As simple as that sounds, this is otherwise called Thunderstorms. Storms as literally and figuratively is associated with many other natural calamities. Below are the Types of Storms :

Hail Storm
Thunderstorms
Ice Storms
Tornadoes
Lightning
Heavy Snow/Blizzards
Floods
Derecho Storms
Tropical Storm
Hurricane

                                      

Let's talk about Tropical Storms as that is what we are experiencing now. A Tropical Storm occurs when the wind speed is between 39-73 miles per hour, the driving factor in a Tropical Storm is the wind current and most damaged is caused due to the heavy rains and debris.

Safety measures for a storm are similar to any other natural disaster, however; one can be prepared in advance.

  • Electricity is the first impact, ensure you have battery-operated Flashlights, radios for a dark night. 
  • A medical kit is essential for yourself or anyone in need as you cannot expect flying debris( Debris here could mean sign-boards, heavy toys, garden equipment, garden furniture based on the speed of the wind),
  • Remove all electrical appliances and all items placed loosely on the shelves.
  • Keep storage food, water, sleeping bags and blankets close to you as these storms may last from 2 to 200 hours. 
  • One can never be enough prepared for the damage, storms can bring on us. Ensure you have all your personal information, including, telephone numbers of neighbors, family & friends, insurance and property information, medical records and important numbers for utility services.

Safecastle introduces Basic Essential Kit - a kit that last through emergencies

Today we discuss, how each individual reacts to an emergency, be it a party plan or a long due trip. There are two kinds of reaction - one who is always prepared beforehand, meticulously organised and then are the others, most of us - the last minute people. Planning could be as simple as carrying license and car documents when driving but for the bigger issues at hand - organized is the way to go.

Imagine scrambling through food and water supplies in a flooded house or when the whole world is shaking around you, you are looking for a flashlight. Fret not, we are here to help. Safecastle brings to you a Basic Essentials Kit that we think will last you for an emergency. Essentials can differ for each individual, for eg: my emergency kit will have a lip balm. But here we go with the basic necessities for a human being to survive a flood, earthquake, tornadoes and the likes..

Food comes first in mind. Post a calamity, it takes a long time for life to revert to its normalcy. Stocking up and easy-to-cook, good quality long-term storage food is essential. We offer you an assortment of delicious food and comfort food to last you up to 72 hours.






Clean water becomes a bare commodity in times of a natural disaster, we offer you easy to use, Lifestraw personal water filter that filters up to 1000 litres of water that can last one person for a year.

I bought a can to experiment, and ended up buying a couple more! It's thinly sliced, and packed around parchment paper, and is very good. I have used it straight up and cooked with it. This canned bacon has worked well with every recipe. I'm now keeping a can in my camping gear just in case my bad hunting skills leave me in need of a morale boost. Good for when I run out in the kitchen, as well. You won't be disappointed in this great tasting stuff - Smith Williams

Aftershocks and its Aftermath..

Well, we all know about Earthquake, how uncertain and destructive it is. We also can relate Earthquakes to Global Warming and we can classify it as man-made (as everything else is). We recently discovered that an earthquake underwater can cause a Tsunami, a disaster most of us were unaware of until it struck.

Similarly, an earthquake is not a one-time affair. there are after-effects that lasts much longer than we can imagine. And no. we are not discussing the rubble and losses, we are discussing the after-shocks of an earthquake which can last up to weeks, months and in some cases years. We know an earthquake is the shaking of the earth's crust due to the passage of seismic waves, Aftershocks, on the other hand, is the process of the earth's crust getting adjusted to the shift after the Mainshock and like everything else, getting used to a 'change' (in this case the earth's original position), takes a lot of time.




The duration and impact of an Aftershock depend on the intensity of the Mainshock. The bigger the Mainshock, the longer the Aftershock. These are more dangerous as they are unpredictable and can cause more destruction than that of the actual Earthquake. One needs to be always vigilant post an Earthquake, as there have instances where after-shocks have been chaotic and calamitous.





As with any earthquake, the first impact is electricity and water and scarcity of food items as the aftershocks are unpredictable, ensure you are adequately stocked with necessities.
