Contacting victims by phone
An excellent suggestion from a caller to ABC Radio for people trying to contact friends or relatives during a disaster: As the mobile phones of such people will become low on battery power, do not attempt normal calls to them nor leave voice messages but instead send SMS messages as these will consume less of their battery power AND will be more easily responded to.

Remember to frequently check:
