Prepper News Watch for April 10, 2013

Prepper News Watch

Will They or Won’t They? – That’s the answer we’re waiting for, will North Korea go through with their threat to fire missiles on South Korea? If you’ve been following all the news on this, you know that this is a complex situation. NK’s leader is in a situation where he has to move forward or risk bigger issues at home. Tensions are mounting and the fear is that the situation will rapidly get out of control. Are you prepared? Have you been prepping plans and gear? If not, you should be. While we hope that this situation will de-escalate soon, we should be prepared in case it doesn’t.

H7N9 Bird Flu – We’re still watching this. News reports suggest that the authorities are monitoring the situation closely and doing what they can to control this virus before it gains a critical foothold it needs to spread. The issue, though, is that it looks like they are only testing those people that exhibit obvious symptoms. In other words, there could be more people infected with this virus that we’re aware of. Of course, this is only an issue if the virus mutates and gains human to human transmission. As a prepper, what I take away from this is the increasing occurrence of novel strains of animal influenza.

Still Taking On Water – There has been a distinct increase in the number of articles regarding the failing economy. This is a slow-onset event, but it seems like we’re coming to a point where big changes are near.

If you have find a news story or prepping-related article, send it in.
