  1. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Things getting interesting with TD 13 and 14 Looks like this hurricane season may be about to get really interesting, as if 2020 hasn't been special enough already. I'm sure many folks on here are watching what's rolling off the coast of Africa very closely. Y'all be safe!

    When trying to solve a difficult problem, one solution is to brain storm how to make the problem worse. We write down ideas how to make the issue worse, then figure out the opposite solution to each suggestion. The opposite solution being a proposed answer. This type of tool is used in forms...

    If things play out as forecast, it looks like Hurricane Florence may equal or best Hurricane Harvey. As of 9/12/2018, the storm is expected to strengthen, then stall as it makes landfall. This is a nightmare situation. If you are in the path of Hurricane Florence, get out, get out, GET...
  4. Political News and Discussion
    One thing is for sure, 2017 was one for the history books. Not only was Donald Trump sworn in, but we also got to see the true side of the liberal left agenda. 2017 laid bare how divided the United States really is. There is no longer a peaceful transfer of power. People in powerful places...

    California residents don't learn and expect the State to help after a big Quake, the OES sounds a little miffed about the lack of preparedness. I would expect to start seeing those public service messages again on Quake prep, I foresee looting in Calif future. "Cities, counties and Gov. Jerry...
  6. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    For those of you affected by Hurricane Harvey, how well did your prepping plan play out? There are a lot of people who were flooded, and there is no way to prep for the emotional pain of that. I would like to hear from the people who were flooded as well as the people who were not. All of...

    My parents and younger siblings moved to New York recently, about a half hour from the "Big Apple" itself. I live in Indiana and have some preps and SHTF plans but I am still a novice. How do I talk to my parents about having evacuation routes in case of a disaster? NYC is the LAST place you...

    Any experts here seen this story? http://www.infowars.com/yellowstone-eruption-in-2016-shocking-new-video-shows-what-is-really-going-on-at-yellowstone/ I live on the east coast so I'm always curious how deep the ash would get here.

  10. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I've been cruising through the threads the past few days and I'm beginning to feel that a lot of people forget about the natural disasters that can rue the day and concentrate more on government collapse, government takeover, or zombies. Don't get me wrong, I'm ready for the zombies (I think)...

    I dont guess New Jersey needs too much help. Things may not be as bad as they seem. If relief crews can be turned away because they are non-union workers, then things must not be "that" bad. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/11/02/New-Jersey-Turns-Away-Nonunion-Relief-Crews...
  12. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    I understand the peoples frustration, my family and I were without power for 18 days after hurricane Rita. 3 days is nothing compared to 2 1/2 weeks. There is no excuse for this kind of behavior. I think this is a good example of how quickly things can go bad. By throwing eggs the people are...
  13. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Three days people, only three days and residents who did not evacuate are begging for help, http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/11/were-going-to-die-staten-island-residents-plead-for-help-3-days-after-sandy/ We have two issues here: 1 - people did not heed the call to evacuate. 2 -...

  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    As many of you know, the upper midwest and midatlantic states had an incredible windstorm (called a Derecho) which knocked out power and water to large areas. I live in West Virginia, and we are on day 6 of mini-SHTF! Our power is still not scheduled to return until Sunday of this week. My...
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Like probably many of you, we lost power due to the derecho winds that swept through much of the east coast on Friday night. In fact, as storm damage goes, we were on the fortunate side in that it didn't cause major damage to most of the area. Thanks to our great utilities folks, the power was...

    I hope everyone affected by Debby has their preps in order.
  18. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Hey all. We are getting our butts kicked by Debby here today. Our winds hit 60mph, there was a tornado 2 miles East of my house. They say the waves in the Gulf are cresting at 16ft, and we aren't but a mile inland, if that, from the coast. My hubby had to go to the store earlier and he saw...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I admit that I often have a hard time relating to many of the issues that preppers in the Lower 48 experience. Many, if not all of my neighbors have some food stocked up, many have started gardens in recent years, most have firearms in their homes, and alternative energy is quite common (from...
