    You'll say to evacuate but where do the people go to..are there designated places of refuge? No preparedness no plan what to do in a disaster...what are governments doing? Why do we pay taxes

    this is unnecessarily vague. Can't they release a map or something that shows dangerous places!!

    We pay taxes to provide luxury vehicles to MPs.
