The things you find on youtube;

listening to the narrator it's my impression that they have gone through members over the years re. bedrooms " 'decorated by former occupants' " , but what an effort.
I am impressed. Lots of ideas brewing already....Enjoy!

The first thought that came to my mind was the utter disregard for fire safety. High load of flammable materials, wood, plastics, paper, etc. And, to top it off, a 55 gallon drum of alcohol for the stove in the middle of the second exit tunnel.

Didn't see a single fire extinguisher.

A small fire could spread enough smoke to asphyxiate the occupants in short order. Even if it just obscured visibility, the maze like nature of the layout could be deadly during a rush to exit.

If you are going to live in a submarine type environment, you need to take submarine type precautions for fire and the like.

Interesting, as the narrator was moving to the back of the power shack he pointed the camera to the back wall and said the switch gear feeds power from the generators to the other shelters on the property. I wonder how many shelters they have.

I also noticed there are a lot of Christian Icons scattered throughout the rooms so much so that at first I was thinking this shelter was located in Russia. The name indicates ‘Montana Shelter’ so it must be in this country. I suspect it belongs to a small religious community that believes in preparedness. Good for them, I hope more people get on board before it’s too late.

At the start of the video the guy says it is the Libby Lighthouse shelter system... Libby Montana? There is a Gospel Lighthouse church in Libby. Montana. Anyway I hope it is not in Libby, MT considering that is a EPA disaster area. Or maybe that is why it was built... they know disasters can be man-made and the government won't save you. (It was not till AFTER the pbs special that the EPA declared it a "health emergency". )

http://www.pbs.org/pov/libbymontana/

Just a thought.

Apparently I can't hear as well as I thought... In this article it is called Liberty Lighthouse. It was built by the Church Universal and Triumphant. (Sometimes called the Summit Lighthouse ...and they have a youtube channel... http://www.youtube.com/thesummitlighthouse )

(Google is my friend )

That explains the empty rooms. Elizabeth Clare Prophet was a doomsday sect leader who died in 2009. Her church must have started unraveling shortly after that.

I remember seeing her on the national news when I was young. Prophet predicted the world was going to end several times in the 1990s or perhaps a little earlier I think. I seem to recall she got in trouble with local code enforcement after staging several 24 hour evacuation drills for her people. They would drive up from LA or northern CA to the headquarters in Montana to take shelter. When they got indoors there were no toilet facilities in the shelters and no buckets to use either. The county got after her for that and not getting building permits for any of the construction. At that time they had enough room and supplies for around 1,000 members in surface or shallow earth shelters.

I thought the shelters were windowless concrete domes with some dirt pilled around the bottom third or so. The narrator said something about being 10 feet under, so this must be a later structure. Considering the expense and size it must have been for leaders and their favorites. He spent some time showing the ‘Master Bedroom’ off. That may have been her personal space in the shelter.

I looked for it on Google earth but no joy. I wonder if the county made them tear the domes down or if they worked with them to comply with building code.

Interesting...

Looks pretty cool, But I wouldn't be happy if I had to spend much time down there.

The most obvious for me is the population capacity. It appears to be ready to house far more people than would be remotely comfortable in such confined spaces. there is a reason why astronaut teams are small, and it's not just because people are heavy...

Better you than me. First you have to join a dying cult, then spend every dollar you earn buying there publications and finally spend the rest of your life listening to recorded sermons by 'The Mother'. Oh, and did I mention the chanting, lots and lots of mind numbing chanting.

You put 96 people in that cracker box for a year. I bet only one comes out alive. One fridge for all those people. Hmmm.
