Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) Scheduled by DOD for November 4 – 6 – What It Means for You

Social media is circulating an amateur video that reports an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) will take place on November 4 – 6 and wipe out the nation’s entire power grid.

The video’s proposition that the Department of Defense is planning on wiping out electronic communication is likely false.  According to the DoD, a drill is scheduled to take place during those dates but will only be a drill to test preparedness for a ‘very bad day’ scenario, such as a massive solar flare or an intentional attack on the US power grid.

According to the DoD:

“This exercise will begin with a national massive coronal mass ejection event which will impact the national power grid as well as all forms of traditional communication, including landline telephone, cellphone, satellite, and Internet connectivity.” — Army MARS Program Manager Paul English
