the Big Cities there will be lawlessness, no food, no water and the
streets will ruled by ruthless gangs. The police and fire
department personnel as well as all persons functioning as part of the
infrastructure will have already abandoned the city. The
politicians, the wealthy and the upper elite will have already been
long gone. What will remain will be primarily the criminal gang
elements and those who for some reason were unable to evacuate or
simply refuse to leave for some reason.
The living conditions in any big city will truly be "Medieval" by any
standard with no power, now electricity, no communications and no food,
since the stores will have already been looted and the shelves will be
empty from the Food Riots which we all should know will occur
emediately after the crisis begins.
Additionally unless you intend to eat whatever rats you can catch,
there will be no wild game to hunt for survival and unless you know how
to filter and sanitize water, you will have no water either. If
you wait until after the main population has evacuated then it will
probably be impossible since the Criminal Gangs that do remain will
have most likely be manning barriers over all possible exit routes.
If you are a woman by yourself or with children at this point then you
will be in a very serious situation. Even if you are a single man
and trying to get out, you will most likely not make it through the
routes which the gangs will have guarded. At some point in the
cities, those criminal gangs will most likely turn to cannibalism in
order to survive themselves, so your only value to them, if you are
captured will be potentially their next meal. If you are a single
woman, you can imagine what your value will be to them in addition to
eventually becoming a meal in the near future.
If you were unfortunate enough to have lived in any of the big cities
who imposed gun control or no guns allowed at all, you will most likely
also be unarmed and their will be no weapons or ammunition for you to
find. You will be completely at the mercy of the savage gangs on
every street corner who will now rules every inch of their Medieval
