In the event of a worldwide storm that threatens to destroy life as we know it, the first step is to remain calm. The Earth has weathered storms before, it can do it again. However, there are steps that can be taken in order to prevent loss of life and help preserve the world order.
Detecting the threat:
This can be easily detected ahead of time through weather reports and simply watching the internet. Most likely, several hurricanes will arise naturally on multiple sides of the continent at the same time that earthquakes and other storms are brewing elsewhere across the globe. Weather personalities and individuals on social media will likely comment on the fact that the world seems to be ending.
Of course, there is the high possibility that multiple smaller storms simply happen simultaneously. This will require a bit of discernment on your part as you try to figure out if the threat is real or not. Do not guess wrong.
Analyze the threat:
Determine if the weather event is natural or artificial.
Natural weather events will likely be the result of:
Several smaller storms blowing together and reacting in the atmosphere to create a superstorm that covers the entire planet.
A volcanic eruption (specifically a supervolcano like Yellowstone)
A large school of fish dying from an illness, decaying, and releasing an excess of methane gas into the atmosphere.
Artificial weather events could be the result of:
Weather control satellites (probably controlled by another nation, as the United States CERTAINLY doesn’t have that kind of power).
Side effects of massive chemical warfare (also probably due to another nation)
Determine how bad the storm will be.
Will it end after a short amount of time, or continue for eternity?
How much destruction will the storm cause?
What side effects will the storm have?
Increased earthquakes due to lubricated fault lines after excess rainfall drains into the Earth’s crust.
Mass starvation due to decimated crops and livestock.
Massive depression wave because storms are just depressing if they go on for too long.
Combat the threat:
Once all factors have been taken into consideration, take one of the following courses of action:
Alert Washington. If the storm has already started, substitute hand delivery for smoke signals, as the rain will make it hard to distinguish smoke from cloud.
IF: The storm will cause worldwide destruction and came from natural means: Move to the mountains and sit back to wait. There’s probably nothing that can be done.
IF: The storm will cause worldwide destruction and came from artificial means:
IF: The storm came from malfunctioning alien technology or chemical warfare, alert Washington of such. Begin investigating which foreign nations were likely the cause. The odds are good that Washington will be able to simply use our diplomats to solve the problem before you can locate the culprit, but it can’t hurt to have extra eyes on the issue.
IF: The storm came from weather control satellites, prepare for a mission into space. Alternatively, if things get too bad, prepare nukes and alert Washington. Washington will then do its best to locate the satellites for you to provide targets.
