[quote:Anonymous Coward 2451621:MV8yMDY2ODk2XzM0Nzc3NzU3X0JCRUUzNTJB] I've said for years, and air traveling emp, unless initiated by the largest aerial nuclear weapon in the history of the world, will NOT kill electronics the way many think it will. It takes more than a current surge to kill ALL electronics, as evidence by computers turning back on after voltage spikes all the time. The nature of electronics says there is highly unlikely to be any one event that can actually fry all electronics, but may damage some of them. [/quote]
According to this news article from Gismeteo [
link to www.gismeteo.ru
] Around 20:15 local time yesterday a bright flash illuminated the whole city. Shortly afterwards most of the city's power was lost for about two hours. Anything from television sets to street lights. As noticed in the video some car lights and the radio stopped working as well. Some people even reported their room light bulbs changing color through the spectrum and or showing some weird unusual lights.
The power company explained it all as 'A cat that wandered into a power transformer booth and caused a short circuit.' Must have been Nyan-Cat or the power company people are lying. What are your thoughts? It's way too powerful of an EMP blast to be simple lightning.
