Modern Survival Tips

Modern Survival is a publication that encourages its readers to be prepared citizens who can self-sustain, particularly in the aftermath of a large-scale or grid-down disaster. Their philosophy is to help individuals learn how to be ruggedly self-reliant, rather than reliant on the government, emergency services, or their extended families, neighbors, and friends in the wake of an emergency situation. 

After a major disaster, emergency services and police protection are typically stretched extremely thin. Being prepared to survive after a disaster allows first responders to respond to those who need their help most. Survivalists seek to free up emergency services, resources, and assistance, effectively moving themselves to the back of the priority line because they have the skills to survive, and sometimes thrive, while others may not. 

Life is full of unknowns, and it doesn’t take events like a major natural disaster or man-made terror attack for survival skills to be useful. In addition to the worst-case scenarios most people imagine, there are many everyday survival situations that individuals and families run into, as well. From ice storms to getting lost in the woods, Modern Survival shares tips to help readers brush up on their survival skills. 

Modern Survival’s mission is to help people and families prepare to face the unknown, and come out on the other side. From wilderness survival tips to building a prepper pantry, this publication is dedicated to educating readers in the skills of our predecessors. They believe that modern society has effectively eliminated survival education, and they’re committed to bringing awareness to as many readers as possible. 

As one of the most useful survival resources on the web, Modern Survival provides weekly news, tips, resources, tactics, and even skill development courses. They aim to keep their readers informed, protected, healthy, and happy, no matter what life brings their way.

Massive Storm Wakes Deadly Creatures Leaving Hundreds Injured

(ModernSurvival.org) – Occasionally, Mother Nature unleashes havoc the likes of which one only expects to see in a Hollywood blockbuster. Such was the case recently in Egypt, where vicious storms brought about an event that could have come straight from The Mummy.

Heavy rainfall and snow mixed with dust storms brought an army of venomous scorpions into the city of Aswan in Southern Egypt last week. According to the BBC, 503 people were stung by scorpions that flooded streets and sought shelter inside homes.

Initial reports claimed three lives were lost due to scorpion stings. However, it was discovered the victims were actually electrocuted in floodwaters. Those who were stung received antivenom at local hospitals.

Egypt is home to flat-tail scorpions, known to be among the most deadly venomous scorpion species in the world. In fact, the species is so deadly a person can die within an hour of being stung. The fact that lives weren’t lost due to the scorpions themselves is quite remarkable.

Following the horde of insects descending on Aswan, people were urged to stay indoors both in the city and the surrounding regions.

Thankfully, the nightmare-fueling invasion wasn’t as bad as it could have been. Still, the idea of a sea of scorpions swarming a city is enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine.
