Famous Disasters

Today I am going to take a little break from the typical business continuity and disaster recovery blog to simply direct your attention to this neat little web site I found listing a few historic disasters.  This is by no means an exhaustive list nor do I necessarily believe these are THE most famous disasters of all time, but it is a neat little page with some interesting facts about a few historic disasters.

If you have the chance, check this page out and read the little vignettes about the events listed.

Seems like 2011 could have a list of its own.  One of earlier blogs looked at the incidents that have occurred the past few months.  And, within hours of posting that particular blog, the lights went out in Southern California and the surrounding area.

I hope that the most famous disasters remain in our past, but something tells me we’ve got a few in our near future and that is why we must continue to be diligent and plan for what comes next.

Thank you for your input.
