Do we think cash is a necessity in this situation?
I think having some cash for the unknown situations (bartering, lodging, medical care) that some would be needed. No telling what would pop up later on that could require it (or some other kind of valuable monetary tool - ie Gold/Silver).

Just so happens I was in Hawaii last year when the Tsunami hit Japan. We were at a dinner and our boss steps up on the mic and says we have to evacuate within the next hour. "Go to your room and pack an overnight bag and meet on the buses that will be meeting out front. They will take you to higher grounds" 3 couples got together and went to our rooms, packed all of our luggage (not just an overnight bag) grabbed the water, booze, toilet paper, towels, pillows and blankets from the rooms. We wnet to the money machines, took out as much cash as we could and even went to the front desk to get more. Figured we could rent a helicopter to get off the island if needed? We got into our cars and followed the buses up to the golf course which was in a safe area, but did not seem like it at night. There we had to wait until it struck. The gals were all worked up, the guys set up the party area. We checked TV's to see progress of the wave that was heading our way and made the most of it.
The evacuation plan was amazing. The big island had an action plan and was ready! Ended up very little damage to the hotel. Best thing we did was to load up our bags. We were heading to Maui the next day and were not allowed back to the hotel until after our flight would have left.
Interesting how people reacted. You learn a lot about people in a time of disaster.
Boots, Proper clothing, knife, gold, longgun, sidearm, as many rounds as possible, water, and food items.....ammo would be more important than food items.
