200 years ago today, the fault known as the New Madrid Fault shook the Midwest (and continued for another few months).
The earthquake caused the Mississippi to run backwards for a time and cracked sidewalks in DC.
Whaddya think might happen if that shaking occurred today? With a greater population density and people living in more modern homes (not cabins)?
FEMA would likely have another opportunity to fumble their way through the disaster.
But in the meantime a lot of folks would starve, and may more would die of exposure.
Likely while the National Guard confiscated firearms….
Prep for such things…..have a plan. Have a secondary stash of preps in case your home is destroyed so you have time to dig yer primary shit out of the wreckage of your home while waiting for a blue tarp .
Have you got earthquake insurance? Mine costs me less than 20 bucks a year for a $5k deductible plan. Likely never need it, but it’ll sure come in handy if we have a 7.0 + here in Indiana and my basement walls collapse.
Just a thought.
The one sure things abut such an event…. The Federal government would find a way to take advantage of it take away more of our rights, just like 9/11 and the gun confiscation during Katrina.
