I think major cities do have plans at all times because they have to. Do you disagree with this?
Mass panic would be the worst scenario. They must be using every disaster to study this. Looting and unlawfulness only shows them we can't cope and gives them a reason to initiate marshal law.
Marshal law means they can commandeer your home or vehicle. Your home could be taken over as a command post, or you lose your vehicle
Mass panic is the one thing that scares me most.
Thanks for your post. I hadn't thought about a gun being used as currency. I don't have any guns myself.
I have a son who's a human Rottweiler.

Remember there are a lot of devices that are hand crank from radios and flashlights to cell phone charging stations. A 12 volt to 110 converter is also handy. Many cars have them built in to run lap tops and to charge phones. Have a good supply of rechargeable batteries as well. The most important survival item is a cool head!
In the wake of superstorm Sandy, reports of lootings across the Tri-State have been widespread.
Areas hit especially hard by Sandy continue to deal with dealing with lawlessness.
Rockaways residents told 1010 WINS reporter Gary Baumgarten that looting and thievery have become such serious threats that taking up arms and fleeing town are the best options for staying safe.

If something causes the spread of panic we could see difficult times. I work as a police officer and I recently took off the days around this time and asked my chief if they had any emergency plan in place. The answer was "no". I then inquired if we had an emergency plan at all for any kind of major event. We don't really....just some minor concepts.
