Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center
The 1974 fatal plane accident of TWA flight 514 that left all 92 passengers and crew dead was a tragic event, but it exposed the existence of Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center, which was hitherto unknown to the public. The operations center, located in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia, is a major relocation site for the highest level of civilian and military officials in case of national disaster, playing a major role in U.S. continuity of government. In other words, it’s where the least deserving to survive will go for shelter in case of a catastrophe, nuclear or what have you. And you, the taxpayer, the most deserving, will never tour its facilities.
