+ - Data Safety In A Time Of Natural Disasters->

Submitted by

CowboyRobot writes "The National Weather Service has begun testing the way it labels natural disasters. It's hoping that the new warnings, which include words like "catastrophic," "complete devastation likely," and "unsurvivable," will make people more likely to take action to save their lives. But what about their digital lives?
Recommendations include: Keep all electronics out of basements and off the floor, Unplug your hardware, Buy a surge protector, Enclose anything valuable in plastic
If the National Weather Service issued a "complete devastation" warning today, would your data be ready?"
