Hurricane Matthew, with clouds over Cuba, the Bahamas and Florida, on October 6 at 1 p.m. EDT. Credits: NASA/NOAA GOES Project.

With Hurricane Matthew on its way to the United States East Coast, I thought it would be a good time to go back and review some of my posts on what to do during such a disaster.

Many injuries, such as cuts, sprains, broken bones, infections—even trash in the eye—are common no matter the disaster. You can search for information about those and more by clicking on the magnifying glass near the top right corner of this page.

Feel free to print any of the posts and keep them, and The Survival Doctor’s Complete Handbook, in a waterproof case or bag.
