Science is cool: avoiding deaths from storms

Science gives people satellite images of storms inbound from far-away ocean reaches long before they hit land fall. It warns people to take shelter or move from the disaster zone.  It makes predictions on the path with some accuracy better than no warning at all.

Then medicine, communications,  and earth moving equipment move in to take care of the post-storm damage.

These are all taken for granted, but they all impact lives every day.
