How to Defend Yourself During an Invasion

When a massive disaster happens (such as the Japanese tsunami disaster), then the victims from the disaster will move to another area and drain out the resources. For example, if a power plant disaster would happen and contaminate the area or even worse, then they could move to another area, country, or a continent. If they move to China, then the increased population would drain the resources there faster. They will then move to another area, and the cycle repeats. So what happens if a riot or violent rampage starts, then how will you defend your own life? How will you defend your supplies against invaders?

    Look for signs of a disaster and reports of increased immigrant crossings, roadblocks, barricades, and increased violence are some signs and an incident like a riot.

    Find weapons around the house to use or get weapons from stores. Such weapons could be lead pipes, a knife, a baseball bat, or a crowbar. Such weapons that don't meet the criteria are b-b or pellet guns. Consider buying a weapon like a gun, or a sword.

    Build up defenses. Once stocked up on supplies, barricade and board up your house. If you want to camouflage your house, then break windows, board up only a few areas, and make the inside dull. However if you break the windows, then after, your repair bill would be high, and then survivors or refugees could mistake your home for shelter, which means another invader.
