  1. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Seems like every year at least one large dam in the U.S. comes close to failing (Oroville, CA) due to heavy rains and is only saved due to the heroic efforts of the Corps of Engineers or local authorities. In an extended grid-down situation, when it may not be possible to remedy compromised...

    suppose we suffer a real major disaster (asteroid fall, Yellowstone). how would the authorities handle? would they assure us 'nothing is wrong here' while packing their bags? would they ask the media for cooperation? or would they take control or shut down media? would they genuinely think...

    What kind of disaster scenarios is a bug out bag or survival kit good for?
  5. Books, Movies & Stories
    A huge thank you to all of you who wanted to read my Prepper friendly apocalyptic novel "The Dying Time: Impact" in print as opposed to an ebook. Took me awhile to figure out how to get it out on CreateSpace but it was worth the effort. The print version is a full 6" x 9" so it looks like a...
  6. Firearms General Discussion
    Pros and cons of shotguns vs a 22 rifle for a secondary long arm in a bug out shtf scenario. Would the extra weight of a shotgun and ammo be justifiable as it's "more suitable" for a defensive scenario?
  7. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    Why EMP? THE USA gov. EMP Commission Report states that 90% of Americans will die within one year. North Korea has successfully tested submarine launched ICBM'S capable of nuclear delivery. North Korea successfully launch satellite ICBM Iran (almost enough said) if they don't already have...

    Dealing with bed bugs, had to order a gallon of Sterifab to fight them. I'm thinking it would be very hard to deal with bed bugs in a post disaster scenario. I don't work for any company and get nothing out of this... But Sterifab is great for bed bugs and sterilization.. I used to work for a...

    F.Y.I. Here is information for 2 Texas Gulf coast Hurricane Workshops. I've been in Texas for years and been through several hurricanes and tropical storms. Didn't think there was anything really new to see at one of these workshops but I went anyway last year (to the one in Pasadena). So...

    Thousands on the run by 50 volcanic eruptions on one night in Indonesia. For over 400 years the volcano Sinabung in Indonesia silent as an oyster. In 2010 the outbreak. The same thing last September. Saturday it happened again. 50 times. So we had thousands of people living near the volcano...
  14. Urban Survival
    I'm relatively new to the forum, and wanted to ask if I was the only one looking into this. I've got a BOL if need be, but would like to try and stay put if we could rode out a tempoarary interruprtion in everyday life. I live in a condo complex with shared roofs, and if a place catches fire, it...

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-10-22/city-slickers-unable-to-cope-with-disasters/5038800 Emergency experts say a learned helplessness has left Australians in major cities unprepared to cope in natural disasters. With the increasing impact of extreme heatwaves, storms, fires and floods...

    Luckily the story is mostly crisis averted. We had a tornado warning in our area and headed to the basement. Luckily we faired pretty well, the tornado touched down few miles away in an open field and didn't do any catastrophic damage. Our neighborhood was however pummeled by 60 MPH wind and...

    Curently I am 13 and in 8th grade. And prepping for natural/man made disasters. I live in northeastern Michigan, so really the only natural disasters I worry about are tornados or blizzards. But any man made disaster could strike here. So, when I'm at school I always try to think of what I could...

    Just wondering if any of you came across this Black Friday deal at Home Depot and if you had, what your thoughts were on this flashlight. Possible disaster kit potential? I personally am going to use it for EDC at work and maybe put in my disaster kit after I use it for a while and find its...
  19. Books, Movies & Stories
    I've read Lights Out, One Second After, The Remaining I & II, Six etc but I'm looking for some non-fiction because, you know, it's more realistic. I've read some air disaster accounts, wilderness survival, 9/11 but I'm looking for some longer-term larger-scale survival books … perhaps like...

    So you have your preps pretty much done. You have your 6 months of food and water along with other supplies. You might have even setup a nice piece of land to live off of permanently. You might even have bought some solar or wind power. Lets just say for arguments sake, that you have prepped...
