Q&A: Is a ham radio or cb radio good for emergencies?

Question by highground_07: Is a ham radio or cb radio good for emergencies?
If there is a natural disaster or man made disaster where cell phones and land lines are knocked out, will a ham radio or cb radio still work? What are their advantages? Thanks

CB would be between vehicles depending on if there was a trucker near by. Hams have repeaters and participate in storm chasing and skywarn but what if the storm knocks out their antenna or repeater.
