USA power outages remain in the news:
Relentless heat gripped much of the eastern United States for a fourth straight day on Monday, with about 2.1 million homes and businesses without power after violent storms and soaring temperatures killed at least 18 people.
Utilities in Ohio, Virginia and Maryland described damage to their power grids as catastrophic.
Newt Gingrich tweeted:

And, later, the former Republican presidential candidate added:
Forstchen’s novel “one second after” is an amazingly vivid story ofsmall town’s struggles after all electricity has been destroyed by emp

As far as an emp weapon attack, notice an earlier report:
A nuclear device detonated up to 500 miles above the earth’s surface could generate an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) with a “devastating” effect on power supplies, telecommunications and other vital systems, the Commons Defence Committee said.
It warned that countries such as Iran – which is resisting international pressure to end its nuclear programme – and even eventually some “non-state actors” could acquire the technology to mount such an attack. http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/2012/02/22/warning-on-space-attack-devastation-91466-30379786/#ixzz1nDLv7NRL
If there is an emp attack of one or more of the Anglo-descended nations, presuming that it came from terrorist sources, it could be part of a so-called “perfect storm” of events that could set the USA and UK up for utter destruction. I believe that the debt situation of the USA and UK are putting them at risk of being unable to recover should one or both countries be hit by weather problems, solar flares, severe earthquakes, civil unrest, devastation of their genetically-modified food supplies, food shortages, and/or various pestilences–an intensity of “sorrows” such as Jesus discussed in Matthew 24:4-8 leading up to the time of the Great Tribulation. Of course, another possibility is that an emp-type attack will help start the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7), known by most as the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:21). And maybe there will be multiple emp-attacks and/or devastating solar flare incidents.
Interestingly, solar flares, which can happen from the sun itself, can cause problems similar to an emp weapon. Solar flares were discussed in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. Here are a few passages related to them:
Some scientists believe that there will be an increase in sunspot activity that will affect the earth in 2012. Notice the following from N.A.S.A.:
Solar Storm Warning: Researchers announced that a storm is coming—the most intense solar maximum in fifty years. The prediction comes from a team led by Mausumi Dikpati of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)…
Solar physicist David Hathaway of the National Space Science & Technology Center (NSSTC)…has confidence in the conveyor belt model and agrees with Dikpati that the next solar maximum should be a doozy. But he disagrees with one point…a storm is coming.
Solar outbursts have been proposed that could essentially wipe out modern civilization.
Notice a scenario that is based on a report from the U.S. National Academy of Scientists (although the precise date seems to be speculative):
IT IS midnight on 22 September 2012 and the skies above Manhattan are filled with a flickering curtain of colourful light…Within 90 seconds, the entire eastern half of the US is without power.
A year later and millions of Americans are dead and the nation’s infrastructure lies in tatters. The World Bank declares America a developing nation. Europe, Scandinavia, China and Japan are also struggling to recover from the same fateful event – a violent storm, 150 million kilometres away on the surface of the sun…
According to the NAS report, a severe space weather event in the US could induce ground currents that would knock out 300 key transformers within about 90 seconds, cutting off the power for more than 130 million people…
First to go – immediately for some people – is drinkable water…With no electricity to pump water from reservoirs, there is no more…There is simply no electrically powered transport: no trains, underground or overground…For hospitals, that would mean about 72 hours of running a bare-bones, essential care only, service. After that, no more modern healthcare.
The truly shocking finding is that this whole situation would not improve for months, maybe years…
As N.A.S.A./N.O.A.A. report indicated that the next solar cycle peak may be later, like May 2013.
Both solar flares and emp-type weapons have similar devastating potential.
There are real risks for the USA, Canada, UK, and other nations. But most ignore warning signs. Will you?
