If you find that your power is out, your phone won’t work, and nobody’s car will start, know that we have been hit by a natural or man-made EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse.)
NASA scientists estimate that a huge solar flare will hit Earth every 150 years, and — uh oh — the last big solar storm blasted us in 1859, 155 years ago. The 1859 flare didn’t cause much damage since we weren’t as wired as we are now, but it did take out almost 125,000 miles of telegraph cables.
How will you survive if the power goes out for a year?
How will you obtain water? (I thought of my rainspouts and water filters.)
How much food would you have? (I’m considering stocking up on canned goods.)
I recommend prudent preparation and preventative prayer.
