Doomsday Preppers

Doomsday Preppers
The end of the world did not come for Judgment Day followers expecting the rapture in May 2011. But a question remains: who are these people who continuously fear a forthcoming end of the world, and who obsessively prepare themselves and their loved ones for the worst? They are called "Preppers", like Peter Larson who built an underground bunker where he and his family can retreat during a nuclear attack.
