Need Info. on North Carolina Bank Building Hardened Concrete Bunkers : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Last night at about 11:00 pm, EST, I was flipping through the cable channels (Time Warner in Raleigh) and heard a preacher talking about Y2K.

For identification, this preacher was a young thin guy with a mustache. He was at a podium and there was a young lady to the preacher's left. The preacher was of a denomination which he called "Jehovah Jireh."

This guy was giving an overview of the Y2K situation, and despite his typical TV preacher style, he was pretty objective in pointing folks to information sources.

The preacher made one assertion that I'd like to explore. He said that, in preparation for Y2K, a North Carolina bank is building remote computer operations centers made of specially engineered hardened concrete (able to withstand explosive blasts) which are powered by massive diesel generators and which have enormous underground diesel storage tanks. The preacher and his female assistant said they had actually seen one of these installations.

Does anyone have any idea what this preacher is talking about? Is there any kernel of truth in this?

Also, I noted today that a North Carolina bank, namely BB&T, has been added to DeJager's promise-keepers list. Anyone know any details about this? Anyone know if BB&T is actually ahead of other NC banks?

Does anyone have any idea

I'll certainly be looking into this with you. Let you know if anything concrete surfaces ;-}

I did read an article a while back about such installations, though without any specific Y2K reference. There are companies that specialize in super-high-security data centers.

Shimrod, that's what I was wondering. It's my guess that if there is any truth to the existence of such a building, then it probably has little to do with Y2K but has more to do with general terrorism and the Oklahoma City type peril. I still would like to know more about this. (If the forum doesn't have any more info., maybe I'll try to get in touch with that preacher and ask him what he was talking about.)

Companies set up Year 2000 war rooms

Here's an accounting you'll want to read. No North Carolina companies mentioned, but plenty of companies are involved in building their own y2k "war rooms"
