Disasters That Affect Preparedness Items
From: Aloha2U www.HawaiiPreppersNetwork.com
As the radiation from Japan’s nuclear disaster spreads across the US. We are informed by officials, experts, and researchers that the levels are low. I don’t know about you but I’m not waiting for any kind of informed status update by anyone when it comes to nuclear radiation. The situation in Japan is beyond serious and we keep getting conflicting reports from the government of Japan. I don’t really even trust our own governments reports for that matter either. Although I do have a couple bottles of potassium iodide, I have not taken them. Instead I am currently taking spirulina which by the way has radiation protective benefits, I use the powder form but I also have on hand the tablets. As a prepper you really want to be on top of things as best as possible.
My findings have concluded that preparing goes well beyond one disaster such as Japan, that endured 3 and still working on capping the third. Evidently, the nuclear radiation will affect us all in some way, shape, or form as it travels across the globe. Knowing this fact there are more things that will also affect us here in the US as well, such as cars that are manufactured from Japan and think about the parts that are made there too.
Japan imports a great deal of food and other commodities to the state of Hawaii, now everything needs to be scrutinized before coming in to this state from Japan with good reason. I was planning on going there sometime this year, but well a big cancel there!
As a reminder, I would like to suggest that if you are continually working on your preps as we all are doing at this time in leaps and bounds. Do so diligently and in a timely manner, especially when it comes to items that need to be shipped from elsewhere that you may need to order outside of your state. Reason being is that you never know when and where the next disaster will occur and how it will affect the items as well as the availability of those items that you may need for your preps. You want to do this NOW if anything. I used to order certain things from Japan but now I will not be doing this for a long time. And if I purchase anything made in Japan here in Hawaii I need to question the merchant and get as much info when it comes to radiation and when was this product brought in and so forth. I would strongly suggest you do the same.
Disasters, man made or natural in general will affect supplies of all types be it food, water, medical, etc. And disasters also affect retail and wholesale outlets which eventually trickles down to the consumer, that’s you and I. In summary, get all and as much of your preps in gear ASAP because no disaster will wait for you to be prepared.
