Reports that this is happening in NY and Hawaii. My patriot supply is saying 6+ weeks for delivery time.
Other claims are that if you order long term food from online stores, it may take forever to actually get it because they don’t have at the warehouse but that is just what some have claimed

Coronavirus fears empty store shelves of toilet paper, bottled water, masks as shoppers stock up

..

Costco employees were limiting shoppers to five packages of each and hand loading them into carts. As pallet after pallet was cleaned out, one shopper at the end of the line shouted out "The end of the line for the toilet paper and paper towels is right here."

Yep - mountain house earlier this week website went offline for orders, CostCO had been selling said items and all references to those goods vanished.

Mountain House website is back on like with a major chunk of items out of stock.  Also I think one item at CostCo came back online but at a real high price.

For what it is worth, we are seeing some signs that items that rely on China component are impacting the supply chain for both finished goods and as parts needed for complete items.

Right now I am back ordered on a nice radio transmitter....

Thrive another place that I have bought food in the past indicates very heavy order activity.

Good luck getting any LT from Walmart or Amazon.
Most is out of stock at Walmart.
Amazon is showing 1-2 months for delivery on most LT items.
