Another vital essay from @SDFirewolf of @DisVisibility on the vulnerabilities of #disabled and/or elderly people in natural disasters.

In #CaliforniaWildfires, disabled people may be left behind sf.curbed.com/2018/11/13/180… via @CurbedSF
.@SFdirewolf: "Every time a major disaster occurs, whether it’s far away or in my region, I wait for the stories of older or disabled people left behind during evacuations or encountering major problems accessing services at shelters and during recovery."

"Even with the best warning notification systems and strategic plans, people with disabilities are disproportionately impacted during natural disasters."--@SFDirewolf

1 in 5 Americans has at least one #disability, according to @CDCgov.
