If you were at work and a disaster occurred, would you know what to do? According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, most people do not. The agency says 70 percent of Americans haven't participated in an emergency drill or exercise, besides a fire drill, at their office, school or home for the past two years. Their study also states 50 percent of Americans don't have an adequate emergency plan.
Along with state and local officials, FEMA is hoping to change that during a National Day of Action.
After the extreme rains of 2013 hit Colorado, scientists wanted to know if the intense weather event was linked to climate change. After a year's worth of research, they have concluded that the unusual rain event was not made more likely or worsened by human-caused climate change.
