A new report exposes a major weak spot in American’s defense against terrorism – the power grid. The Washington Examiner reports:
In a new report that warns that the electric grid is the “prime target” of terrorists, Americans are being urged prepare for the up to six months without electricity, transportation, fuel, money, and healthcare.
“People no longer keep enough essentials within their homes, reducing their ability to sustain themselves during an extended, prolonged outage. We need to improve individual preparedness,” said a just-published report to President Trump.
“There needs to be more individual accountability for preparedness,” adds the report, “Surviving a Catastrophic Power Outage,” from the President’s National Infrastructure Advisory Counciland published by the Department of Homeland Security.
It looked at the potential of a power outage of up to six months and recommended Americans have enough supplies on hand for a minimum 14 days, a standard for some prepper organizations.
A crippling attack on the nation’s electrical system would be a catastrophic blow, and Americans should be ready to endure hardships in the face of enemies as our forefathers did in the past.
