In just the last twelve months Congressional members and top level administrators at the Department of Homeland Security have warned of threats to the national power grid so serious that should they occur life in America as we have come to know it would change almost instantly.
Former DHS head Janet Napolitano, in a letter to her successor, advised that a massive and serious cyber attack on the US Homeland is imminent and that a natural disaster the likes of which the nation has never seen is also likely on its way. This was followed up by a comment from House Homeland Security Committee senior member Yvette Clarke (D-NY) who noted that, the likelihood of a severe geo-magnetic event capable of crippling our electric grid is 100%.
Couple those threats with the realistic possibility of a rogue or state-sponsored attack on America by way of a super electro-magnetic pulse weapon, and the odds of a widespread American Blackout increase dramatically.
With our complete dependence on the power grid to maintain the regular flow of commerce, communications, and emergency services, even a short-term grid-down event could lead to serious consequences.
According to a report commissioned by the Department of Homeland Security which cites data from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the infrastructure supporting our power grid is so outdated and vulnerable that an attack or natural disaster could lead to an outage scenario of unprecedented scale.
If you live in or around any of these areas you can expect a societal breakdown within 72 hours or less and with traffic systems inoperable and roadways likely jammed, therell likely be no way out.

It's a question of efficiency.
It's either that, or my live-in MIL volunteering my ass all across the county to "make sure Mrs. So-n-so is alright" :o)
God help us.
uh does the name Katrina mean antying to you?
It didn’t take 72 hours for looting to happen in New orleans, now imagine if the power went out, and STAYED out. They’re killing each other there now like it’s free, and the power is still on.
Oh did New Orleans cease to exist? I missed it. How about Hiroshima and Nagasaki did they ever rebuild?
Two men on each team have become proficient with a .308 rifle and scope.
And these two can act as snipers and keep repair crews at bay....
As for Japan, aren't they irradiated from fukushima now?
And actually Hiroshima and Nagasaki didn't rebuild themselves.
AMERICA rebuilt them.
I have listened to several hours of the archives lying here ill and it’s pretty good stuff. Thanks for turning me on to it. Certainly helping to pass the sick days away. Hope you enjoyed your Christmas!
How far would be a safe distance from a danger zone?
