But this time, it wasn’t just one such event that struck the country, but two, with a mere eight days between the end of one and landfall of the next. Never before in our nation’s history, has there been so much destruction wrought in such a short amount of time.
In the past, natural disasters of this magnitude have become watershed moments for various presidents.
Everybody has his own scenario about SHTF. Is it going to be dark and cold, or hot and suffocating? Is everybody going to become ill or turn into zombies? Or maybe it will be about nuclear fallout burning out any living organism.
We hope we will never find out, but we’ll keep prepping in between. That’s why we stumbled upon other survival websites, and chose a few hints to help your prepping efforts. Keep reading!
Can you imagine dying from a cut on your finger or a scrape on your knee? How about a respiratory infection or a toothache?

In the aftermath of a nationwide disaster, such as a financial collapse or an EMP attack, there’s a good chance that our economy will be reduced to a barter economy. Many experts have predicted this, based largely on what has happened in similar circumstances, elsewhere in the world.
These experts recommend stocking up on barter goods that you can use during such a time. I have no argument with that, as you’ll need something to trade, in order to get the things you need. However, I wouldn’t put barter goods before the supplies you need for your family; make sure you’ve got enough of those first.
