The odds are likely that you will face some major disasters at some point in your life. Maybe it will be a wildfire, or an earthquake, or an economic collapse, or–God forbid–World War III. Which one do you think it will be?

These are the basics to get the “creative juices” flowing in your mind. Of course there are many more items that could be listed; however, these are basics and not intended to be comprehensive. The best time to start on them is now.
Hurricane Florence Threatens Georgia, the Carolinas, Virginia, DC, Maryland, and Delaware. Get prepped, because if Florence hits, the storm will rival last year’s Harvey, Irma, and Maria. And the way our luck has been going with disasters lately, I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if it does make landfall.
Hurricane Lane is packing 155 mph sustained winds, with gusts clocked at 185 mpg and is expected to sweep the southern shores of all the major Hawaiian Islands. It will be a Category 3 storm as it starts it move across the southern parts of the six (6) major islands before it moves off to the west/northwest.
I was talking a few days ago with a friend about the issue of friends and family when SHTF. I realized that some 15 years ago if something serious happened, some event that needed a strong group of bonded people in order to overcome that event (riots, serious weather event, disruption of law and order, war…)
Earth Changes Accelerate: What Is Causing These Record Heatwaves, Massive “Firenadoes”, Giant Dust S
Something truly dramatic appears to be happening to the globe, and it isn’t just because the amount of carbon dioxide in the air suddenly reached some sort of magical “tipping point”. But without a doubt, temperatures are getting warmer.
If there is a large earthquake, however, the aftershock sequence will produce many more earthquakes of all magnitudes for many months. Scientists have not found a way to predict earthquakes and earthquakes have a nasty habit of occurring where a lot of people are living.
Most preppers rightfully believe that the cities would be the most dangerous places to be if society collapsed. Rural areas are generally safer, have less burdensome governance, and provide the opportunity to gain some degree of self-sufficiency.
If an all-out war erupts, it will be like nothing the Earth has seen before. All of our “progress” means that each side now has the weapons at their disposal to destroy their enemy many times over. Because of this, we can’t as readily look back in history to learn how to survive World War 3.
Would you like to add off-grid solar to your preps, but think it’s too expensive? I’ll show you how to build an inexpensive system that can grow, as funds become available. You’ll find your small system very useful, and you’ll look forward to the added capabilities that each upgrade brings.
Food poisoning is no joke. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of how fresh the food in their fridge and freezer are when they return home from a long trip or vacation. If the power went out for a day or two (sometimes a few hours will do the trick), meats and other temperamental products could defrost and go bad.
Several potential adversaries have or can acquire the capability to attack the United States with a high-altitude nuclear weapon-generated electromagnetic pulse attack (EMP). A determined adversary can achieve an EMP attack capability without having a high level of sophistication.
5 Catastrophic Consequences Of A Major Solar Storm Hitting the Earth and Changing Life As We Know It
A recent report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center predicts a Category G2 geomagnetic storm. An aurora borealis is projected to be seen in the skies above New York to Wisconsin to Washington state.
The entire Los Angeles metropolitan area and most of Southern California can expect blackouts this summer. The power grid is under direct threat as a result of the unprecedented, but little reported, massive natural gas leaks at Alisco Canyon that was ongoing for four months as an intense summer heat wave sets in.
That magic moment when you go to wash your hands….and nothing comes out of the tap.
Late on Friday evening – you know, too late to reach the local repair guy – that was the scenario at our rented farm. Nary a drop was coming from our faucets. For the past couple of months, I had believed there was an impending issue with our well. However, it was one of those intermittent problems that was impossible to diagnose before it actually fell apart completely.
