Considering 99% of all scenarios that are likely to happen will still have some internet/telephone services available; what are your main ideas for how to gather intel?

Ex) If a riot/hurricane hit suddenly with little warning; how would you get your info? What would you be watching for to begin protective actions? What would be your triggers?

I ask because the vast majority of us do not have/use HAM radios or know someone who does.
