I am currently reading a book titled "One Second After" that is about a man living in a small town in North Carolina and what happens to him and his town after an EMP attack on the USA. It is written from his point of view so, just as if it were happening to you, when the power goes out, the cars stop running and all electronics and communications and electricity goes down, we do not know who did it, or why. It is a good book so far.
One thing it has got me thinking about is what would I and my family do in the event of an EMP attack on the USA.In my job I have to drive up to 2 hours away from home. I am wondering what I would do if an EMP attack happened while I was that far from home or in transit. I now am thinking about putting together a bag with food bars and water, different clothes from what I have to wear for work (because I am not going to want to hike a long distance in khakis and a collard shirt), and I would want to have some type of rifle with me. I am thinking about a Kel Tec SU-16D because it folds up and uses AR15 magazines which I have a lot of and it is chambered in 5.56. If anyone has any other suggestions, let me hear them.
And what do all of you think of the EMP scenario? From some things I have read, other than this book, this seems a real possibility to me. And a scary one too.
