Map Shows Where Billionaires Are Buying Land for the Apocalypse

Are you ready for the apolcypse? It may seem like a silly question, but some of the nation's most wealthy people are getting ready, just in case.

Forbes recently published a story on the increasing amount of billionaires snapping up large parcels of land across the country. Now, rich people buying land doesn't seem like anything new, but the reason behind the purchases is.

Many of these land parcels include "doomsday bunkers," which are underground shelters that can be used in case of alien invasion, nuclear war or any other type of worst-case scenario. Many of these emergency-ready estates are in states like Montana and Kansas, where you can buy large pieces of land that don't rely as much on modern conveniences.

So, where are these billionaires' emergency bunkers? Take a look at the map below.

Most of the billionaires listed have multiple plots of land across the western states. That gives them plenty of options for themselves and family to retreat to in case of a disaster.
