Daily Collapse Report for Feb 17 2017

1. EMP: Technology’s Worst Nightmare…
Given the current state of U.S. unpreparedness for an EMP event, it is estimated that within 12 months of an EMP event, two-thirds to 90 percent of the U.S. population would likely perish from starvation, disease, and societal breakdown.

2. North Korea, the real threat…
The regime’s irrationality makes a catastrophic missile strike plausible. An EMP that blacks out the national electric grid would be a far greater catastrophe than blasting a city. A North Korean 10-kiloton warhead blasting a city might cause about 200,000 casualties. However, the same warhead making a high-altitude EMP attack — though there would be no blast, thermal or fallout effects on the ground — could knock out the electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures for more than a year, killing 90 percent of the population through starvation.

It’s totally fine to eat a product even well after its so-called expiration date.

This is a good article for preppers who are unsure about the dates and what to eat, store or throw out.

The risks from an American supervolcano with the potential to cause worldwide havoc “should not be ignored”, according to expert geologists. It would be a yuge mess… Get it… yuge?

5. And another disaster waiting to happen in North Korea…
A HUGE volcano in North Korea could be on the brink of erupting, and if it does, the explosion could be so severe that it would cause devastation around the entire globe, scientists have warned.
