An EMP can be a result of two of these; a nuclear explosion or 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. By and large, a large EMP attack will often result in such widespread problems and this is one thing that should be well appreciated. Check out this post for some idea on how to survive an EMP attack and be as adequately prepared to survive whatever it is that life can throw at you.
An EMP, as well known as electromagnetic pulse, is generally 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. And just as we have already indicated above, the two most common causes of EMP are solar flares and nuclear explosions. Read on and see some of the things that an EMP can damage.
Generally, a number of things can get damaged as a result of an EMP and this is depending on the extent of the explosion or the solar flare 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. 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.
Looking at the above basics, it is a fact that when we are looking at an EMP attack, we are not necessarily talking of a case where a country is actually declaring some form of 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.
