I often wonder about complacency. With stuff like this, tsunami, etc. So many warnings and then nothing or minor. People are going to start to ignore and go about their lives. I know I have to a certain extent and have to get back into rotating my food stock and backfilling. Especially water storage.
That said, with family members who need regular treatments, I also have other worries. Personally, I don't have any daily prescriptions, so I'm pretty low maintenance in that regard.
