Disaster Preparedness: Protect your emergency radios and electronics equipment from a natural or manmade Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) event by using this simple yet very effective Faraday Cage that costs only about $15 dollars. A natural EMP can be caused by our Sun during a Solar Flare or a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) that is directed towards the Earth. A manmade EMP event is caused when a nuclear bomb is detonated at high altitude.

Interesting Information from the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center - Scale for Geomagnetic Storms:

Scale - G 5 Extreme:
Power systems: widespread voltage control problems and protective system problems can occur, some grid systems may experience complete collapse or blackouts. Transformers may experience damage.
Spacecraft operations: may experience extensive surface charging, problems with orientation, uplink/downlink and tracking satellites.
Other systems: pipeline currents can reach hundreds of amps, HF (high frequency) radio propagation may be impossible in many areas for one to two days, satellite navigation may be degraded for days, low-frequency radio navigation can be out for hours, and aurora has been seen as low as Florida and southern Texas (typically 40° geomagnetic lat.)**.
