Top 50 Items You Will Not Be Able To Find In A Disaster Scenario

We have all seen the news reports of people panic shopping just prior to an expected hurricane.  The shelves are bare, people are stressing, and they are settling for just about anything they can find rather than what they would like to buy.

Price gouging is rampant from greedy store owners, and tempers flare.  All of this even before the storm hits!

Thanks to The Bacon Report for the following list of items that disappear first during a national emergency.  Take a look through the list to see if the items apply to you or not.  If they do, then the time to prepare is now.  Stockpile what you need before they disappear.
