89 y.o. Michelle Poche had trouble getting around so she insisted on ignoring the evacuation order to stay in her home when Hurricane Harvey hit her local area.
Her neighbors stayed behind as well.
Their goal was to protect their home and also be there for the elderly Michelle if she needed anything.
After the storm and flooding, one of the neighbors waded through the waters to go check on her.
What did they find?
The senior citizen had drowned… with her phone after just dialing 911.
But that wasn’t all they discovered, and…
Most People Aren’t Prepared For What Neighbors Found Waiting In This 89 y.o. Woman’s Home…
Of course, “death” is as bad an ending as you can get to this heart-wrenching story.
Especially given all the rioting and looting we’re seeing now, I thought this story was worth recounting.
An elderly woman… all alone… watching the waters slowly rise in her home.. desperately dialing for help that will never come!
But there’s a deeper, more disgusting element to this story that offers a valuable lesson in what to expect in the after-effects of any kind of disaster or crisis…
You see, her entire home had been ransacked by looters who took whatever valuables they could find while the dead body of the 89 y.o. woman floated right next to them in 4 ft. of water!
Having personally seen the direct results of disaster 2 years ago (where we lost 12 men, women, and children when a 50’ wall of water flooded our little town in the early morning hours), I can tell you there are 3 things you can count on…
1. Neighbors will “try” to help neighbors.
Most people really DO have the best of intentions.
Sadly though, when it comes to life-or-death decisions, it’s “everyone for themselves”.
It’s best to pull together and face a crisis as a “team” – but you can’t count on it.
They have no morals… no fear… and their only goal is to take advantage of the “sheep” of our society during hard times.
If you appear weak, they will target you.
Dead or alive.
With law enforcement taking part in rescue missions, there will be no rule of law to hold them accountable.
3. Everyone can FAIL you!
Your 911 call will go unanswered… or fall on deaf ears.
98% of your fellow citizens will be unprepared for even the smallest disaster.
During catastrophic scenarios, first-responders will be forced to do the best they can to rescue those who are trapped in cars… attics… on top of homes…
… and for many – like for 89 y.o. Michelle Poche – help will come too late.
Bottom line is this…
During ANY disaster or crisis, the only one who can look out for you… is YOU!
Not your neighbors… not the police… not the government.
When it’s life-and-death, it’s a dog-eat-dog world and it’s YOUR eyes your loved ones will be looking into for saving.
Unfortunately, most people (even experienced “preppers”) don’t understand the right way to set up your survival plan based on real-world scenarios.
There’s frankly too much “fantasy survival” crap littering the internet and steering people in the wrong direction.
Make sure you’re not falling for all the “zombie survival b.s.” when putting together your plan, and just take it one step at a time.
You’ll get there. 🙂
