There is no part of the earth that has not seen a natural calamity. Earthquakes, severe snow falls, Tsunami, hurricanes, and storms are some of the common natural disasters that mankind sees. There have also been some manmade disasters like the two World Wars that have been fought.
What is common whether it is a natural disaster or a man-made one is that people may get displaced, there will be no power, food and drinking water would be scarce, one may lose all they had gained in their lives.
There are some people who maybe called paranoid as well and they believe in a doomsday, a day where the earth would end, in a more probable term these people prepare themselves for the worst scenarios and keep themselves prepared.
The main item one needs in such situation is food, however, one cannot store food for years together and hence this is kind of difficult. Maybe one can have a stock of energy bars and replenish them as and when they get eaten.
Lack of power and darkness is what most people can relate to and a flashlight is perfect if you’re a doomsday prepper. A flashlight would come in very handy, especially during the night and also when a natural disaster strikes many animals and pests also gets displaced and may attack humans. As animals are afraid of light, this would be really helpful.
Many people think that their basement is the place they would want to hide in case of a disaster striking. It may be a good idea for a manmade war kind of scenario but when it gets flooded or in an earthquake where there is a risk of falling object, it may not be a good idea. However, it is better to stock your basement and probably can make it like a bunker too.
