If And When An EMP Strike Takes Out The Power Grid, You Will Want To Be Prepared. Here's How:
Making the choice to go off-grid is something contemplated by millions, particularly in the light of strong storms around the country that wipe out power grids for days or even weeks at a time.
Our world today depends heavily on keeping electricity flowing at all times. If that flow stops, everything comes to a grinding halt. We know from Hiroshima and Nagasaki that an EMP blast (in that case emitted by the explosion of the atomic bombs) will short-circuit all electricity. This means that not only will it take out the power grid, but most electronics will be fried as well.
So it begs the question: if you make the switch to an off-the-grid lifestyle, or employ a solar panel system in your bug out location, will a massive EMP strike take out your system along with the rest of the power grid?
The answer to this question has a lot to do with circumstances and preparation. Keep reading to learn more.
