I heard this on The Weather Channel this AM.
These statements are from The White House and are referring to the U.S.
I do not have a link to these, yet.

1.   We are very vulnerable to failures of the power grid
2.   We have had seventy "Billion dollar disasters" since the year 2000.

Humm.....I guess they are trying to subtly prepare us.  Unfortunately, most of the population are not paying attention, too wrapped up in their own little world.  Or as one of my family put it to me, "I have enough to worry about without thinking about things like that."  I can only try to keep my mouth zipped, as what in the world could be more important than their personal survival?  So sad!  But as I have said so many times, some are meant to know and survive and some or not, or as Marshall always says,

 "Destiny comes to those who listen, and fate finds the rest.

So learn what you can learn, do what you can do, and never give up hope!"  Well said, Marshall.

This statement is from the White House. 
Storms such as Hurricane Sandy will be the rule rather than the exception.

Some little hints and tidbits leak out... It would be hard to know for sure who knows what even on up to POTUS himself... I am sure there are people running the charade bullying everyone to keep their mouths shut...or else not fully briefing them in the first place...
Endtimesgal I emphathize with you...

Yowbarb Note -
The Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), within the Executive Office of the President of the United States released a statement May 07, 2015.  Here is the link to the pdf of the document: http://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/publications/DRAFT-NSWS-For-Public-Comment-508.pdf 

Yowbarb Note: In this post I put the live links within brackets.

National Space Weather Strategy

The technology and infrastructure that forms the backbone of America’s economic vitality and national security is subject to many risks, and among the most challenging is the risk posed by space weather storms. [ http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/about-space-weather ]

In November 2014, the National Science and Technology Council
[ https://www.whitehouse.gov/administration/eop/ostp/nstc ]
established the Space Weather Operations, Research and Mitigation (SWORM) Task Force, and its charter directed the development of a National Space Weather Strategy, which will articulate high-level strategic goals for enhancing national preparedness to space weather events. Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection Caitlin Durkovich is a co-chair of the SWORM Task Force. [ http://www.dhs.gov/person/caitlin-durkovich ]

Reducing the nation’s vulnerability to space weather is a national priority. The Strategic National Risk Assessment identifies space weather as a hazard with the potential to pose a significant risk to national security.
[ http://www.dhs.gov/strategic-national-risk-assessment-snra ]
As a national risk, space weather warrants a coordinated strategy, and the Whole Community must work together to enhance the resilience of critical infrastructure to the potentially debilitating effects of space weather. [ https://www.fema.gov/whole-community ]

The SWORM Task Force recently released a draft national strategy and is seeking public comment. Everyone has a part to play in mitigating the nation’s risk to space weather, and the Office of Infrastructure Protection encourages stakeholders to review the current draft.

July 20, 2015, issue of The New Yorker: 

The New Yorker article says, “FEMA projects that nearly thirteen thousand people will die in the Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. Another 27,000 will be injured. And the agency expects that it will need to provide shelter for a million displaced people, and food and water for another two and a half million.”
