Prepper News Watch for March 27, 2013

Prepper News WatchCyprus is still trending strong in the news, especially the commentary and opinions on what we can learn from it. As noted in the last podcast, this is an excellent time to study this event and update your preparedness plan to accommodate for an event like this affecting you. The thing to take away from all of this is that you cannot trust banks and need to protect your savings outside of the banking infrastructure.

Also, if you haven’t noticed, EMP is popping up again in articles from a wide range of sources. Most likely, this is driven by the threats from North Korea. If you’re not familiar with what EMP can do, be sure to check out the pages and podcasts, as well as my “Surviving EMP” book, on EMP Preparedness.
