First World countries are better prepared in this regard. Far more loss of life occurs in Third World countries due to less advanced warning systems and a lower level of preparedness. The link below is a First World example of preparing communities for a Hurricane. <a href="http://www.weather.com/safety/hurricanes" target="_blank">http://www.weather.com/safety/hurricanes</a> Another example: <a href="http://www.odpm.gov.tt/node/21" target="_blank">http://www.odpm.gov.tt/node/21</a> <h1><span style="color: #000080;">Cyclones around the globe</span></h1> <h2>Dando - Mozambique 2012</h2> <strong>Flooding in Kruger National Park</strong> <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/EI7YQe1RGZM?wmode=transparent" height="360" width="640" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> <a href="http://www.news24.com/Africa/News/Mozambique-tropical-storm-kills-five-20120119" target="_blank">Mozambique tropical storm kills five (News 24 article)</a> <h2>Yasi - Queensland Australia 2011</h2> <a href="http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news/floodrelief/north-queensland-braces-for-cyclone-anthony-as-cyclone-yasi-brews-behind-it/story-fn7ik2te-1225997552623" target="_blank">How the first world deals with approaching cyclones - Disaster Info Centre</a> <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/_txm7Idr9HU?wmode=transparent" height="360" width="640" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> <strong>Thousands Flee Cyclone <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/4LtDqmMD2K0?wmode=transparent" height="360" width="640" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> </strong> <strong>Tropical Cyclone Yasi Approaches Queensland Australia <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/IJjuequT3QU?wmode=transparent" height="360" width="640" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> </strong> <strong>Powerful cyclone Yasi hits Queensland in Australia <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/8Z6DRwz1gjI?wmode=transparent" height="360" width="640" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> </strong> <strong>Monster Storm: Cyclone Yasi batters Queensland, Australia <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/vDuJlwb7YbM?wmode=transparent" height="360" width="640" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe> </strong>
