The old Emergency Survival message used to be 72 hours, but we’ve seen in disasters like Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy, that wipes out your infrastructure, your electricity grid and your communications for weeks. Economic Collapse could be even longer. It will be very likely be more than three days before you start getting food, water and other supplies coming in from outside – Plan for at least a week. You can’t rely on the government to protect you!
Having personally experienced one of the worst winter ice storm in Western North Carolina history (5 days without water or power), and the longest power outage in West Virginia (14 days without power), and the Northern California Loma Prieta Earthquake, 7.2, of 1989, I can share first hand what its like to be without power for many days – At home and on the road.
