Disturbing indeed. I checked the US State Dept. website to see if they have any current travel advisories but didn’t see anything. I would take it as a sign that things are getting worse if you were to see embassies reducing their staffing levels, being they may well have insider info that isn’t being released to the general public. If the elite are heading off for foreign vacations, that might be worth noting too for the same reasons. Of course, how is it anyone is supposed to know of these things is another matter entirely. To all of our SA members here I would suggest making sure you have fuel enough to keep your home generators running for a month. It may also be time to review again your security plans and your supply levels.
