Have you ever thought about how fragile the US power grid is? And how would you survive if the power grid went down? What would be like in the dark?

Have you ever wondered ’’what would we do if the lights went out’’? Who could have foreseen the 9/11 come? The difference between 9/11 and what I am about to tell you is that we know that this is going to happen; the question is not ’’would it happen?” but ”when is going to happen’’? If this happens the consequences would be a million times worse than 9/11.

One day you are enjoying the comforts of life, the next…everything is different. Civilization as you know it would be gone. An electromagnetic pulse would destroy all electronics and the tranformers that power everything with an on-off switch…your hot water heater, your refrigerator, your dialysis machine. Hospitals are closed, grocery shelves are empty. Most of the food you have at home is spoiled..and forget your bank accounts, it doesn’t matter, what you have in your pockets is all you can access.

I imagine myself waking up to tatal darkness, nothing in my home working, food spoiled, water not running. I rummage thru whatever last cans of food i can find. I’m alone…because my kids and loved ones have no way to get to me and I’m afraid to leave because is to dangerous. People are desperate. They’re hungry. Our civilization is thrown back to the dark ages. I’m scared and helpless and I don’t know how I can survive.

This is how most of us would feel if such an catastrophic event would occur. Experts predict mass fatalities, horrific loss of lives, some even say that 9 out of 10 Americans would die. This is not SF, it is very real and here are the ways that a lights out scenario could happen. It could be a solar flare or a nuclear device, a cyber attack or a simple physical assault to our power grid, all of which would bring down our society as we know it. Not many of you know that North Korea has a satellite the size and weight of a small nuclear weapon orbiting the US from the south, a direction which lacks early warning or missile defenses.

The threat could also be from the sea. In 2014 two full up, nuclear capable, missiles on their launchers were discovered in Panama on a North Korean flagged ship hidden under sugar bags. Reports are that out grid has been already penetrated by our enemies leaving behind software programs that can compromise it.

In 2013, unknown attackers attempted to blow up a San Jose transformer substation in military style raid. No one has been apprehended. The FBI and local police called it ‘’vandalism’’. The attackers surgically knocked out 17 transformers, 16 circuit breakers after cutting underground fiber optic cables and outsmarting security cameras and motion sensors. A week later a similar attack in Tennessee where a suspect on a boat fired shots at a nuclear power plant and then engaged with police. Even if no one attacks our grid the sun will. The Earth is exposed to intense solar flares roughly about 150 years. The last time it occurred was 1859…do the math.

Scientists tell us that an EMP created by a nuclear weapon in high altitude is the most efficient way to take out America’s electric grid, telecommunication networks and all critical infrastructures. . I’m not saying this to panic anyone, but everyone, including our enemies know that an artificially created electromagnetic pulse will shut down all power, which risks our complete survival. The United States possesses the world’s largest power distribution system. What is our government doing to make sure that our grid is really protected?Nothing. Are we ready for an attack on our grid or the catastrophic failure that will result? Probably not and that’s why I would like to reveal to you how would the first days look like after TSHTF.

On day one, everyone will probably just assume the power will be back on in a matter of minutes or by the next day. That means that things will not be frantic, people will not be worried, and stores will probably still be open. That makes the very first day the most valuable day of this scenario. Even if you had stocked up and prepared for this beforehand, this day can be the game changer, possibly the determiner of whether or not you and your family will live or die. You must utilize this first day to the best of your ability.
