What do we know about EMPs?

There are many different warnings and EMPs hitting the states. Some people wonder if is possible for an EMP to do the damage described in many posts. Others are planning for a direct hit in the states. I believe it is better to be prepared for a hit and know how to protect yourself and your family. The way our countries are trying to show who has bigger armies, better tanks, and advanced technologies, I have no doubt something will happen in our lifetime.
Rather than sit around and through conspiracy theories out there, lets just see what needs to be done. There are a few articles of interest. While I don't personally know what an EMP detonation would do, I try to educate myself everyday on possible scenarios. I have been reading books and watching videos on survival situations. I am practicing these lessons with my family so they understand who has what role in a situation. I look at it like this: We are making a cake, each family member has certain ingredients. If the ingredients don't work together, our cake is a mess.


One good article I recently read was:

Life After An EMP Attack: No Power, No Food, No Transportation, No Banking And No Internet

This article was written several years ago but it just goes to show how long some people have seen the threat of EMP attacks.
