How would we know the power was out in the whole country? Me thinks the government wouldn't tell us if it did, out of fear of mass chaos.

Well, my point was if the outage is somewhat local, you could always get in your car and go somewhere where there IS power. No big deal. If the whole country is out, it becomes a much bigger deal. But yes, primer, good point. They may not make an effort to tell us, and would enough infrastructure still be running for word to get around?

I believe during the show, the news anchors repeated that they were running off of generators. Once NBC, CNN, FOX and radio networks are no longer broadcasting, there isn't much the government could do to quell fear.

Default Duh...............

Allze you got to say is class 4 hurricane. I was 10 yrs old when Betsy hit La. we were lucky enough that the natural gas wasn't shut off for long. She packed 150 mph winds. I saw trees that were laid down, then stood back up when the winds changed. Sheets of tin embedded into trees on thier edges. All the more reason to can your veggies, smoke, salt or pickle your meat and fish. There was no fema back then..............Most of all, fresh water is a big, big plus.....................Don't count on uncle sam when the sh$t hits the fan.............................
