WHIPPANY - The world may not have ended on Friday like the Mayan calendar did, but doomsayers say the world is still a dangerous place.

A Morris County survivalist store owner says just because the apocalypse failed to materialize doesn't mean citizens shouldn't worry.

Frank DeMaio owns 'Get Out Safe Whippany,' the only brick-and-mortar survival store on the East Coast. DeMaio says the Mayans notwithstanding, natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy are a reminder that self-reliance is the best policy.

DeMaio says there are a lot of incidents that fall short of an apocalypse that people can prepare themselves for, such as a food or water shortage, terror attacks, pandemic solar flares, nuclear accidents and more hurricanes.
