No electricity, fresh water, medicine, cell service… people starting to eat pets and drink contaminated river water… and this is just a localized crisis in a rich and powerful nation willing and able to send massive help soon. What would happen in your area if the entire planet were affected at once?
From an anonymous person with relatives in Puerto Rico:
“My family has lost everything. My uncle with stage 4 cancer is in so much pain and stuck in the hospital. However conditions in the island are far worse than we imagined and my greatest fear has been made reality. The chaos has begun.
The mosquitoes have multiplied like the plague. Dead livestock are all over the island including in whatever fresh water supplies they have.
My family has been robbed and have lost whatever little they had left. The gang members are robbing people at gun point and the island is in desperation. People are shooting each other at gas stations to get fuel.
They’re telling us to rescue them and get them out of the island because they are scared for their lives. We’re talking about 3.5 million people on an island, with no food, no drinking water, no electricity, homes are gone. Family if you have the means to get your people out, do it.
This is just the first week. Imagine the days and weeks to come.
These are bad people doing bad things to our most vulnerable. Imagine a few weeks with no resources and the most vulnerable become desperate.
What are you capable of doing if your children are sick and hungry?”
I expect that we are not too far away from the next catastrophic pole shift that will reduce civilization to rubble. Do you hope to survive the aftermath? If so, what have you done to prepare? Watch Puerto Rico and learn, for it could be much worse than this.
