One thought on “The Disastrous Tale”

  1. Thank you for saying “no debris in the path of a tsunami.”
    I live in the part of Oregon that has already been written off as a loss in the event of a big quake. If we exist, we can survive on our own for two months (in wintertime, summer is less).

    Emergency preparedness is a big deal here and I hope to add it to a game soon.
