Electromagnetic pulse attack on Hawaii would devastate the state

KimOn July 9, 1962, Hawaii was hit by a massive electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, which within minutes took down the state’s communications systems and traffic lights — virtually everything that ran on electricity.

The EMP wasn’t an attack by a foreign government; rather the U.S. government had set off a 1.4-megaton nuclear warhead at a height of 248 miles above Johnston Atoll in an operation the military named “Starfish Prime.” The test caused radio disruptions in Hawaii, California, and Alaska, and knocked out six satellites above the Pacific.

“No one expected the test to impact Hawaii, because it was 850 miles away,” said Toby Clairmont, deputy administrator for the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, which is located within one of Hawaii’s most recognizable landmarks, Diamond Head. “This kind of blast does not hurt people, but as we’ve seen, it shuts down power and phones and goes after infrastructure and could cause problems at medical facilities.”

    This is something that the Gov. should have taken care of many years ago, but know, let it go till we have to do something, but it’ll be to late then! But don’t think for one minute that our Gov. and military hasn’t protected itself from such an attack! It’s we the people that will pay, for something that was really cheap and easy to fix!!

    And Hawaii has been sitting on its ass for how many yeas waiting for someone else to solve their problem! And Congress and the Feds have too. In Government we trust? Never!

    Electromagnetic pulse attack on Hawaii would obliterate North Korea and the Fat Boy Dictator. Why do you think we have a Carrier Fleet stationed near by?

    Hawaii is a very liberal state. The courts have defied the constitution and caused havoc with our national freedoms. Hawaii should be given to Russia and let Russia deal with them. Then America does not have to fear a cyber attack on Hawaii!
