EMP is often the result of any of the following issues; it can be the result of a nuclear explosion or be the result of a solar flare. Read on and see as we discuss some of the damages that may result from an EMP attack and as well some of the actions that you may be well advised to take so as to survive an EMP scare. Note the fact that a large Electromagnetic Pulse can have so serious and devastating effects and cause widespread problems. Read on and learn more on EMP attacks and how to be of a mindset that will help you survive an EMP attack.
By and large, when we talk of EMP, electromagnetic pulse, this is simply a wave of electromagnetic radiation. As a matter of fact, an EMP will not directly hurt people though it will often get to interact with power lines, metals, conductive materials, electronics and will in most cases cause power spikes. Should the EMP, the electromagnetic waves be so high in surge, they may be the result of some of the failures you may see with your electronic appliances in the home or at the office. For the sake of reiteration, it may be worth noting the fact that we already have seen mentioned above that the two main causes of an EMP are nuclear explosions or solar flare cases. The following is a look at some of the things that an EMP can probably damage.
Talking of these, note that there are quite a number of the items in the home and installations that may be affected and get damaged as a result of an EMP and these will depend on the magnitude or extent of solar flare or nuclear explosion causing the EMP. When it comes to some of the devices and installations that may take a hit as a result of an EMP attack, we see some of these as; TV and radio transmission and reception devices, refrigerators, satellites that may be in the EMP zone, computers and the other network connected devices, aircraft and vehicle control systems, power grid transformers and substations, telephone and mobile lines et cetera. By and large, any sort of electronic or any item that is powered by electricity can get damaged as a result of an EMP.
From the above facts, we can see the fact that a when we talk of EMP, we are not necessarily looking at a case where a country is declaring some nuclear war on another. An EMP of substantial magnitude will have an effect on the electronics there may be in a system and can be so surely disruptive to the whole systems. It is important for governments and businesses to ensure that they have in place the right measures in place to protect their systems from potential EMP attacks.
