The Best Places in America to Be in The Event of a Collapse - Ask a Prepper A link of a place I ran across. As I agree with some of the place (guess I'm geographical biased of the Ozark Region, even though I just live on the outskirts). I also think that this guy didn’t think all the other elements of those areas through very well. The Ozark Region is all I could really talk about with some kind of knowledge. I don’t think that he thought about the weather in this area. Its gets pretty hot in the summer and cold in the winter, but then sometimes the winter can reach 70's and summer won’t get out of the 90's. Also in the winter it might snow one day and be 50 the next. One thing about this area is there are not but a few large cities in this area. There are a few bigger within a 50-100 miles or so, but not that many as the East or West coast. Also this is pretty much tornado alley. (thank you Ganado for the map) I hope this gives someone that might be on the fringe about relocating to a place just because one person says it the best place. There has been other people that talked about the best place and Oklahoma was not at the top, but not at the bottom. More at the upper middle. I have lived in Oklahoma my whole live, mostly on the eastern side. From almost on the Kansas border to where I am now approximately 70 north of the Texas border and 60 miles from the Arkansas border (yes this would give you an idea where I live, but that’s still a huge area to try to find me). I just would like to share this and get other opinions on this. Maybe tell why where they live would be better or not.
