As preppers and survivalists, we understand the importance of being properly prepared for any type of natural disasters.
Many citizens are not prepared, and some may even consider you a little crazy for preparing for emergencies. However, when it comes down to it, preppers tend to be looked upon as geniuses once disaster strikes.
When these Southern citizens were faced with some of their own natural disasters, they handled it exactly as you would expect..
When The Waters Of The Mississippi River Broke In April 2011, It Created One Of The Largest And The Most Damaging Floods In The U.S. But Some Residents Decided They Wouldn’t Let Their Homes Be Destroyed…
… These preppers took Matters Into Their Own Hands Instead Of Letting THIS Happen.
They Created Mini-Islands Together!
… Of Course, Some Didn’t Quite Make It..
Although these didn”t all work, the cooperation needed to create these “islands” to save surrounding neighbors is incredibly moving. It brings a newfound respect for the South, where your neighbors are your family, and makes me want to move there ASAP.
