I had a bad past week as many of my cameras and lenses were damaged when Hurricane Irene visited with flooding where they were stored. NO, stupidly, they were not in plastic freezer bags. Please inform me: are zip-lock bags the way to go here, assuming a Pelican case would not hold nearly all that I have? Any other suggestions? Please do not recommend a bank safe deposit box because that is precisely where they were: water measured 2.5 feet in the vault! - David Lyga.
