(This is the best list I have ever come across. It is maintained and updated on a regular basis and complied in very friendly formats (English Speaking Stations Only Listed) sorted by UTC time or sorted by country)
In times of large country wide disasters getting the real news is paramount to understanding what is actually going on around you. A government or terrorist act could shut down the internet, cell phones and local TV and Broadcast news. Your only link to the outside world is going to be a Shortwave Radio. This can be a low cost simple everyday portable house radio that has 'digital' shortwave band tuning/reception or a Shortwave HF Transceiver that also allows not only listening but the ability to speak to others on a chosen frequency.
Small samples of the actual listings look like below:

I recommend you copy and paste the lists you want into a Word Document and save it on your computer and on a flash drive. Each list is large at 17 pages.
Make it a point to search for 6 or 10 stations you like and your radio and antenna receive best today. Keep a record of them rather than searching for one after a communications blackout.
For me it's a great help to have a digital 24 hour clock dedicated to showing UTC Time. It's helpful because when I'm searching for stations like at 10:pm my time I can search for stations that are on the air converted UTC time. Now I can search for stations matching the time I'm listening. Saves a lot of time.
Here's where I purchased my clock:
