Talking of EMP, this can be the result of any of the two things-a nuclear explosion or a solar flare. We will be taking a particular look at some of the effects of the EMP and as well some of the actions that you may take so as to ensure that you have well protected or managed as much the effects of an EMP attack. By and large, a large EMP attack will often result in such widespread problems and this is one thing that should be well appreciated. 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. As we already have seen hinted above, this is often the result of any of the two causes; a nuclear explosion or a solar flare. 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. Talking of some of the items and installations that will be taking a hit in the event of a serious EMP, think of TV and radio broadcast equipment, power grid transformers and substations, telephone and mobile lines, aircraft and vehicle control systems, computers and other network connected devices, refrigerators, satellites that may be so located within the EMP perimeter. Basically any kind of equipment or device, electronic or one that is powered by electricity can get damaged as a result of an EMP attack.
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. Governments and businesses would be well advised to ensure that they have put in place such measures that will ensure that they have safeguarded against cases of EMP attacks.
