THE INVISIBLE STRIKE

WHAT DOES A HEMP ATTACK MEAN FOR THE U.S.?
Aside from communications systems being down, personal digital devices will also cease to function if they are not shielded. The more delicate the circuitry, the more susceptible it will be to a HEMP.

It could happen in mere seconds. A nuclear device detonates high above the earth’s surface and … silence. Lights that normally illuminate buildings shut off instantly. Electricity and anything else you can think of that is powered by electrical systems and microcircuits no longer functions.

If you seek news for what’s going on, you won’t find it on television, because the signal is not working. Phone networks and the Internet are out of service, as well.

People panic, wondering what is happening. They don’t know that a high-altitude electromagnetic pulse (HEMP) hit the United States. They don’t understand what lies ahead.

WHAT IS A HEMP?

When you think of “HEMP,” it’s important to understand this form of nuclear attack causes mass destruction without directly harming people—at least, not right away. The result of the detonation of a nuclear device high in the atmosphere and then amplified by the ionosphere, a HEMP is an electromagnetic energy field that covers the line of sight below detonation. It will damage electronic equipment and electrical systems over an expansive area. This can result in a cascade failure of the power grid, water treatment centers, gas refineries, and transportation and communications systems.
