Alas, we don’t know how long it will take you to evacuate. However, here is a useful way for you to think about what it will take:

How many trips to the car is do you have time for?

  • Only 1? What will you take? How long will that take you?
  • Time for another? What will you take next? How long will that take?
  • Another?

Note that each trip requires more time rearranging the car (and maybe looking for bungee cords)!

No car? How much can you carry?

For 1 million bonus points: How long will it take you if you have prepared with handy-dandy checklists and a few pre-packed bags?
