Blog #1: Be Ready for Any Disaster


First off, this website really appealed to me because it’s about St. Louis in general. I liked that it was a specific place, especially since it relates to Mizzou because St. Louis is the closest major city to Columbia. Second, the layout of the website is very organized and appealing as well. It’s easy to navigate and you can get the information you’re looking for without searching the website for hours on end. I also really liked that there are a variety of disasters included. The disasters range from something as simple as a power outage to something as drastic as a tornado. The website gives you some control on what organization’s advice you want to follow. Personally, I liked the advice Red Cross gave out. Their pages were very organized and in the form of a checklist. This makes it easy to follow directions safely. Each page is broken down into a checklist of “what should I do, what do I need, and what do I do after?” Red Cross walks you through the before, during, and after stages of the disaster.

    I like the website you have linked to. I agree that it is nice that it is local and it is well designed.

    In future blog posts try to break up your text into multiple paragraphs so that it is easy to read. You might also consider adding an image.

    Finally, this blog post is late. Remember it is supposed to be posted by midnight the day before it is due. See syllabus for details.
