Well in West Virginia (and reported in eight other counties) there is, like in other parts of the US, only here the water is polluted from a chemical spill. An then guess what happened…you guessed right, people ran to the stores to stock up on bottled water. And then the fighting started!
A typical apocalyptic scenario: No supply and then store shelves empty. People then turn on each other, even friends and family. If you are not already in one of the affected areas, what would you do? Would you be prepared?

Following on from our previously highlighted articles about bans and restrictions on self-sufficency, we discovered a story which turned the thumb-screw a bit more.
Preppers in LA found growing-their own and/or producing their own electricity where paid a visit from SWAT teams. Any preppers out there in other US staes or different countries for that matter who are experiencing the same procedure feel free to comment on this post.
Most people today think nothing of opening their doors to their homes in your typical suburban neighborhood when the doorbell rings or there is a knock at the door. People assume it’s a neighbor, or a package delivery, etc, etc. While it is still prudent to make sure you know who is at the front door before you open it; post apocalypse it takes on a whole different outlook.
In a post apocalyptic world; should there come a knock on your front door, of wherever you are calling home, do not answer it. Why; similar to what happens in countries where wars are a common occurrance, once someone hears a homeowner respond to the knock from the other side of the door; they send some rapidly fired bullets through the door injuring or killing the occupant. Then they proceed to break in and take control of the home.
Everyone loves a good zombie movie. With zombies on TV, in the movies, and just about everywhere else, you might suspect that the zombie apocalypse has already started.
In reality, though, zombies are just a work of fiction. There are more than enough scenarios out there to worry about that actually have a chance of happening. There are some people out there prepping for just such an outbreak, but while this is pretty far-fetched, there are some solid prepping skills to be learned from zombie preppers and zombie movies.
If you’re familiar with zombie movies or TV shows like The Walking Dead you know that ammunition will run out at some point. The big difference between movies and real life here is that the starts of the movie pick up hand weapons and just magically know how to use them, the truth couldn’t be farther…
Yes, we all know that zombies in television series such as the Walking Dead or in movies such as World War Z are only fiction (for now) but it’s interesting to speculate on the origins and development of potential zombie outbreaks. So here are some ideas to consider relating to potential zombie outbreaks. Now it’s up to you to decide on their viability.
Origins could be the side effects of scientific experimentation pertaining to perhaps biological warfare, or extending the life span of sick medical patients, or could be a new, virulent strain of an already existing virus such as rabies, etc.
Outbreaks might occur as the virus is passed from person to person through either bites, or infected scratches which perpetuates spreading, leading to death and reanimation as a zombie.
Once infected the body could undergo changes such as shutting down non essential bodily functions and reducing thought processes to primitive…
