article-1286539-0A0845BE000005DC-905_468x644One of the event’s I prep for is a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) or Solar Flare and Electronic Magnetic Pulse (EMP).    With all the things going on in North Korea today particularly, a nuclear missle launched into the atmosphere would take down sattelites.  That would completely shut down our electronic grid.  No grid, no cell phones or other electronic communications.

With the advancement of technologies that run our lives today, the damage and devastation of either a CME or EMP would likely be catastrophic for our way of life.  Certainly, everything will be different.

There was a major event which happened in 1859 with what became known as The Carrington Event.  Should a similar solar storm erupt in the coming years, it will release a massive amount of high energy charged particles streaming toward Earth.  It is reported that it WILL penetrate Earth’s magnetic shield.

Can a Carrington Event happen again?  Of course!  Will it?  Eventually.  You may be surprised to learn that you have lived through two relatively recent events.  First, in March 1989 a solar storm crashed the Hydro-Quebec power grid and resulted in loses estimated to be in hundreds of millions of dollars.  Again in 1994 a solar storm caused major disruption to communications satellites, network television and nationwide radio across Canada. Neither of these storms was particularly powerful in comparison to the Carrington storm.

So when I heard that there will be a new series, also called The Carrington Event, I got excited.  For anyone, especially committed preppers, knowing and seeing what life might be once such an event happens will serve to give us further knowledge which will take some of the surprise out of it when it happens. It will also allow us to evaluate what and how we prepare.  Set to premier this summer, I can’t find an exact date.  But follow me on Facebook and I will be posting all the information I find.
