El Hierro, Again? Eruption Appearing Likely

This may be the straw on the camel's back.

This is a very dangerous location for many reasons, the least of which is La Palma. It seems to accompany very vigorous periods of volcanism worldwide.

A decentralized agriculture system was able to weather a year or more without a summer two centuries ago following Krakatoa and El Hierro eruptions and only a hundred thousand people starved to death. In today's world, a similar event would be absolutely apocalyptic. The only nations which would have enough money to bid for harvests would have been the Western nations in the past - however the Kwa and UK are flat out busted. Even if all the food was sold to the West and they let the rest of the planet starve, food prices would be so astronomical that you'd be extra glad you packed it as Vault-Co advised. Get ready to feed your neighbors and other non-Vault-Co browsers who didn't pack anything. There's a whole generation raised on food from a McDonald's window that will shortly be in for the surprise of their lives.
