Going underground? Bunker Sales Surge in Wake of Japan Nuclear Threat

Reservations for a doomsday bunker in the U.S. have rocketed since Japan’s catastrophic earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown.

The 137,000sq ft bunker – designed to house 950 people for a year and withstand a 50 megaton blast – is currently being built under the grasslands of Nebraska.

Vivos, the California-based company behind it, is taking $5,000 (£3,100) deposits, which will have to be topped up to $25,000 (£15,600) to secure a place.

    Interesting to see the lists of supplies stored by those in the UK. Here in the colonies the #1 item is plenty of ammunition for you weapons. Your facinaion with 'burglers' may come back to haunt you. In a huge crises burglers are mearly another source of protien.

      Hi Doug – not a very tasty source of protein I'm sure.. ;) Storing ammo as a #1 priority is a very smart move. I don't think most American's realize how quickly you can rip through 100 rounds of ammo in a gun fight. Sadly, I think even the most prepared survivalists have probably underestimated how much they will actually need when TSHTF.
