I think it is interesting that there is more and more on the news and on news programs like Primetime or 20/20 now. I really think that they are trying to slowly bring the idea to the public without causing any major concern so that when it does happen the news etc. will be able to say well we have been telling people it will happen for months or years so they should have been prepared.
I know I am getting more things in over time and have ordered a food dehydrator to prepare more foods that I know what are in them and that sitll have some nutritional value to have in our pantry. I am beginning to think that having a good stock of foods etc on hand is a good thing (channeling Martha Stewart there) Especially in light of this news and the recent storms. After all I can use all of this even if nothing happens but if it is I will be prepared.
Should a deadly flu arrive in the United States -- and experts are not predicting when or if it would -- Hudson said that frequent hand-washing, the use of alcohol gel hand cleaners, and "respiratory etiquette" such as covering your nose when you sneeze are effective preventatives. "Stay home when you are sick," he advised.

we will never be prepared for everything that can happen. flu pandemics, plague, nuclear war, aliens, tsunami, hurricanes, etc etc. The world is a dangerous place. Enjoy the ride and leave it better than you found it !

And exactly HOW many pandemic's have you lived through? No? None? Ok then most of us including those reporting it haven't either. They just know from historical accounts what it can do to bring nations to their knees.
We have NO immunity to this particular strain. So very likely if this were to strike us you would bear witness to something you have never likely seen in your entire life.
