Wasn't sure which part of the forum to post this. There have been so many natural disasters lately - hasn't the one in Japan been dreadful. And still I am sure there is much to come of that one. Anyway, here are my questions. What do you think are the most likely disasters down under? I'm quite near to Sydney. What sorts of disasters might strike here? Would the main threat be bushfires? And do people have a disaster preparedness "kit" of some sort? If so, what do you have in it?
