Weather is changing globally due to global warming. We should be ready for natural disasters like earthquakes, tornados, sea storms, ice storms, floods etc. Many countries are facing this situation in worse ever form. Some of them are developed countries, but they know that it is better to wait for it patiently and let it pass. They are already equipped to deal such disasters but sometimes all preparation seems not enough. Actually, these are unstoppable and we are helpless against them. We are now able to predict some of them but could not judge the consequences. It is just on estimations and forecasts.
Being a civilized person, we can do in such situation is just to be vigilant and get appropriate training to face these natural disasters. I admire the role of telecommunication and internet in this regards that they are flooding the information for precautions and security measures to meet this situation. We should carefully listen and understand the steps for security and also train our children. Awareness is the key to handle such circumstances. It also relief rescue teams in crucial times.
I followed all the CNN transmission regarding “Irma” that was remarkable. All people were alert and abiding by the rules. But I disappointed to see a few people wandering and enjoying the beach with their kids and pets. It was high alert at that time but “who cares”. They were capturing the view in their eyes and camera just to upload an image or video on social sites. Police had arrested many for the violation but we should also keep in mind that police and other rescue teams were deputed to help the victims. It is a waste of time and resources to engage them in such activities. Also, it was not a picnic time and hurricanes and tornados do not spare anybody.
If someone is willing to help other and also want to come out at this time; a proper training should be the foremost priority for them. This training should be according to you geographical situations. In normal days, enlist yourself in rescue platforms. They will definitely call you to join them in such noble efforts. Help others and enjoy for being human. At least, we can do something for ourselves, family and neighbors.
Being human, we always stand after being hurt or damaged. It is a human spirit that helps to fight against natural disasters. We are all in one string of humanity; people from the world are always standing with victims of all natural disasters. Whenever an earthquake hit in the developed country, all countries on the globe and their people came ahead and contributed for reconstruction. Help is not limited to finance, we can show the whole world a gesture of being together in all calamity. We can share their grievances. This is the least we can do for others. Long live humanity.
