    I have primers from the late 60's that shoot fine, stored indoors, outdoors and in
    several different climates. I wouldn't leave them out at -40 but other than that indoors
    or a basement and don't worry about them.

    I would be concerned about basement in case of the flooding, so store them high or in some sort of zip bags so they would float...

    Cold won't bother primers but heat will. Store them as cool (and dry) as possible and they will last for many decades.
