SHOCK: 72 Hours After Grid-Down: Starvation, Supply Shortages, Food Lines, No Clean Water, No Gas, Transportation Standstill *Independent Reports
A recent study noted that the majority of people have enough food in their pantries to feed their household for about three days and that seemingly stable societies are really just nine meals from anarchy. With most of us dependent on just-in-time transportation systems to always be available, few ever consider the worst case scenario.

For tens of thousands of east coast residents that worst case scenario is now playing out in real-time. No longer are images of starving people waiting for government handouts restricted to just the third-world.

In the midst of crisis, once civilized societies will very rapidly descend into chaos when essential infrastructure systems collapse.

Though the National Guard was deployed before the storm even hit, there is simply no way for the government to coordinate a response requiring millions of servings of food, water and medical supplies

Many east coast residents who failed to evacuate or prepare reserve supplies ahead of the storm are being forced to fend for themselves.

Frustration and anger have taken hold, as residents have no means of acquiring food or gas and thousands of trucks across the region remain stuck in limbo.

Why is the word "SHOCK" in the heading? Who is shocked? I hope most here are not. People aren't prepared. They aren't prepared because they don't believe it might ever happen to them.

Here are some things that we found out about the supply lines today.

Still searching for more info on the condition of the Docks in NY Harbor, Port EElizabeth, etc.

This I think is going to be the real issue moving forward as normal supplies like Food may not be able to get in.

Was thinking earlier today about FEMA's recommendation to have just 3 days supply. Prep or no prep, I would be in a world of hurt if my house were destroyed. Could camp somewhere, but transferring food and supplies would be a huge problem.

With most of us dependent on just-in-time transportation systems to always be available, few ever consider the worst case scenario.

For tens of thousands of east coast residents that worst case scenario is now playing out in real-time. No longer are images of starving people waiting for government handouts restricted to just the third-world.

In the midst of crisis, once civilized societies will very rapidly descend into chaos when essential infrastructure systems collapse.

Though the National Guard was deployed before the storm even hit, there is simply no way for the government to coordinate a response requiring millions of servings of food, water and medical supplies

Many east coast residents who failed to evacuate or prepare reserve supplies ahead of the storm are being forced to fend for themselves.

Frustration and anger have taken hold, as residents have no means of acquiring food or gas and thousands of trucks across the region remain stuck in limbo.

Limited electricity has made it possible for some to share their experiences:

Thing is, this IS a full blown collapse. It's just a process that doesn't hit all at once - and noone is preparing or adapting in reponse to the actual process.

They're just trying to get back to 'normal' - which is code for 'calm, grazing cattle'.

The herd is going to run wild as it all just keeps coming, faster and faster.

Poetic justice for a bunch of leftists that made fun of preppers.
Mormons keep a years supply of food, etc btw.
I saw on the mainstream news that after only three days
that some are dumpster diving for food.
Still making fun of preppers, east coast libs?
Funny how this is way more important than Katrina, or the
tornadoe that did a billions worth of damage to a much smaller population.
Guess it has to hit the heart of the liberal media to be
really important.
And none of these gun controllers have protection!!!
So you doomers finally have your "doom", a bunch of

Two weeks worth of food. Doesn't take up that much space. Could have been collected over time, and stored in plastic containers.
Empty 2 litre pop bottles could have been filled with water before the storm hit. Same as bathtub or large plastic containers.....The possibilities are endless to what people could have done :(
