Eric Holdeman pointed out a conclusion in a recent article that gets increasing support with every large scale disaster we face as a country:

“Years and years of drilling into people’s heads that they have to be prepared to be on their own for 72 hours or three days has provided a negative learning experience.  When bad really is bad, three days is not enough.  Here on the West Coast which is earthquake country a week is the minimum that I’d recommend.  There is no time to pre-assemble disaster supplies.  These are “come as you are” disasters with no warning whats-so-ever.”
