Yeah, we forgot to mention the word, "temporary" when we offered our assistance. We never even got to say, "Y'all come back now, ya hear!" 'cause they never left!

Some of the people I talked to after they relocated from there said they were never going back.

There are two other practical reasons why looting isnt happening...firstly, a lot of the cities arent even on the map anymore...there is nothing left to steal because half the cities in the region have completely gone, washed away.

the second reason is, people are steering clear of the nuclear fall out from those reactors...people are worried in China and Hawaii as well about that...panic buying has happened as far away as the Western Seaboard of the US.

Looters might be idiots...but they arent going to go near a nuclear reactor I dont think

You have any linkable information on "panic buying" in the US?

I bought an extra pack of toilet paper today, maybe that's what Dave's talking about.

But seriously I haven't heard of any panic buying in the US yet. The residual radiation is already in California, but the levels are far lower than anything that would be considered dangerous.

I think Tyburn is referring to the panic buying of potassium iodide tablets.

I wouldn't even know where to find potassium iodide if I wanted some.

Even so, it's protections against radiation sickness are pretty limited.
