Its transport and telephones that bother me most. If trains and airports are being shut above then I guess all the roads are going to be chockerblock? Also I know with a power outage, our house would have no internet or landline and rely on keeping our mobiles recharged. So I headed over to the civil defence page on planning for our emergencies and although there was a lot of good abstract frameworks I didnt see anything very practical.
We've always thought "grab the tent and some emergency supplies and head for higher ground" (though we don't keep extra petrol) but I'm wondering if everyone tries to do this at once in cities like Auckland how would this actually pan out?
