- In Haiti, Americans are being told to bug in due to public unrest.
- In Japan, floods are forcing many people to bug out.
- In Los Angeles, people are having to choose whether to bug out (if they can) or bug in (and somehow survive) extremely hot weather and no power.
- In the west, wildfires are forcing people to bug out.
The bottom line is that you need to be prepared to do both--either bug in or bug out--with little warning and for an indeterminate period of time.
