How to Survive a Natural Disaster

On a frigid December morning in 2013, a couple of weeks after the 2010 Mumbai tsunami, a team of climbers found themselves stranded on an uninhabited mountain in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

The expedition had been organized by the United Nations and the International Rescue Committee, and was headed by British climber Peter Hoggart.

They were the first to reach the summit of the mountain, but the weather wasn’t great.

When the weather started to clear, Hoggarts group found themselves in the thick of a raging cyclone.

“We were told that there was a 20-kilometer (12-mile) drop to the base,” Hoggarty recalls.

The storm was coming from the east and it was headed straight for the base of the summit.

“It was like an apocalyptic movie,” Higgarty says.

Hoggarth’s group was trapped on the steep, icy summit of Kargil Mountain, which is the highest peak in the Himalayas.

It’s considered the second-highest peak in India after the peak of Everest.

The Himalayan mountains are incredibly rugged, and their summit is steep.

Haggart was climbing up the mountain alone.

He was worried about his own survival, but his fear turned to dread when he started hearing that the weather was getting worse.

The cyclone was moving so fast that it was getting really dangerous, and he was thinking, I need to get out as fast as I can.

He thought, there’s no way I’m going to be able to reach that summit in time.

“When I thought about that, I just had to be sure of that I could reach that base,” he says.

But he didn’t have to worry about his life.

The base of Kegil is a popular spot for mountaineering expeditions.

“This base is a very popular place for expeditions because it’s a very good location,” Haggarty says, “and it’s very easy to reach.”

Hoggartz’s group decided to stay at the base, which was known as Jeyapuram, which translates to “the top of the peak.”

“We went up there for about a week,” he explains.

“I was actually going to go out and climb Kargili myself, but I ended up having to stay because we had to stay safe on the mountain.”

It was a good decision, because the cyclone hit the mountain and made it impossible for the group to climb up.

Hogarty says that the cyclones are dangerous on Kegill and that he and his colleagues weren’t able to make it up.

“The only way I was able to get back down to base was to make a small, temporary bridge,” he recalls.

“That was the only way to make the climb to the summit safe.”

Haggarts group decided not to leave the mountain.

“After we got there, we were able to see the summit in a few days time, but it was a very, very tough and dangerous day,” he said.

Houghart’s group managed to climb down the mountain for a while, but eventually they were forced to make another temporary bridge.

The team decided to camp at a place called Vadipallyam, or the “house of the dead.”

It’s a remote location that is considered the base camp for many expeditions that go to the peak.

Hougart’s team decided not have their gear on the summit because the conditions were too cold and wet.

They also didn’t want to make an easy meal.

The weather was brutal, and they only had enough food for one day.

“Every time we got to the top, the winds would pick up,” Hougharts group says.

“There was a bit of snow falling, but we didn’t feel like it was very dangerous, so we ate a lot of food.”

The cyclones aren’t all bad, however.

“They can be a little bit annoying sometimes, but for us, it’s not like the wind is going to pick up and knock us down,” Hougas group says, laughing.

The winds picked up, too.

“But they didn’t really knock us over.

They just picked up the wind and whipped it around,” Hogharts group says of the winds that whipped the mountain up.

In fact, it was the wind that whipped up the cyclonic storm that was so scary, Hougharths group decided they had to go back down.

“For us, the weather has been a bit challenging.

We were worried about the weather but we’ve been able to climb the mountain in a day and a half,” he added.

“If we had stayed here, we wouldn’t have made it down, but this place is so good, you don’t even know you’re climbing there.”

In a matter of days, Hougash’s group climbed down to the bottom of Kagili Mountain, where they set up camp and prepared for their next expedition.
