Thread: What would happen to SA if the power went out for two weeks?

  1. #1

    Default What would happen to SA if the power went out for two weeks?

    I was just wondering what would happen to South Africa if the power went out for two weeks or more?

    What would happen to things like:

    Water Supply
    Petrol/Diesel Supply
    Food Supplies

    etc.

    What are your thoughts on this rather "sensitive" matter?
    Can't think of anything wise to say atm thanks.

    No water, no petrol, no fresh food.

    Thats what I'm afraid of. This power crisis is going to spark mass panic sometime. People are going to start buying up all the food/water petrol etc.
    Not good at all.

    There'd be anarchy, no services, looting etc. Not something I want to experience.

    No electricity for that length of time = no water either.

    If there was no power for 2 weeks, there'd be a huge baby boom in 9 months time...

    Would be dark, we would not see the maggots, water would just be a bit more chewy than usual.

    I don't think there is a real possibility that power would be down for that long. This is not that show Jericho (which I am really enjoying on SABC 3 on Wednesday nights).

    A day at the most, but not two weeks. Regardless, I think I am going to buy some bottled water (from macro in big containers) just to have on hand for a while in case things go bad. Already have some food stashed away...
