Puerto Rico from a prepping/survival perspective.

Six months without power.

A year without fresh food.

Some people still unable to leave their homes.
A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures.

TY for the real life learning experience. A couple of things that jumped out at me were:
But coming up with that cash will be difficult for most people, as the ATM machines that they need to use and the computers for the banks are without power and communications as well. Since few people hold onto much cash these days, but rather use plastic for all their purchases, they are left without the ability to buy even the most basic necessities of life.        Stockpile cash in small bills????
That is, for us to be ready to provide water filtration to those around us.     Life Straws for barter???
Medical Needs
The only medical services we can truly count on in a time of emergency are those that are already in our possession. If anything, we had better count on needing more than we think, not less.   Bandages and antibiotics to use and barter??
Thanks again. If I missed something, pls clue me in.
