Comment #1: I have a stockpile of food and water that I add to all the time, I am also growing a garden this next spring and going to learn how to can. We are also looking into what we have to do to start hunting so hopefully if the time comes to need it I’ll know what to do.
Comment #2: I think it’s safest to EXPECT them to look like that, and prepare ahead of time. Stock food, buy emergency rations. Prepare to hunt. Grow a garden.
Comment #3: I’ve been in that situation. I worked in a store during the hurricane in Daytona Beach a few years back. I was a baker and they pulled me out of the bakery, made me close shop to come up front and bag groceries for 10 hours. By the time they let us employees go home, the store looked much like this picture above. Good thing I had prepared at home days before by storing water and buying enough canned goods for a week. Luckily, we didn’t need much of them we were one of the lucky ones who only lost power for about 18 hrs. where as the rest of the city was powerless for almost 2 weeks!
Comment #4: Anything that causes a panic can cause that. Stores only keep two or three days food in stock for a normal shopping days. When there is panic it goes faster. Keep at least 3 days of food and water at home if not more.
