If you want to have an advantage when this catastrophe happens, then is it important to protect your electronic devices from this.
EMP causes damage since it induces strong, damaging electrical currents in unprotected electronic parts and in wires. No one can deny the importance of electronic devices today since most of our important information is stored here. A strong EMP can easily damage our electronic devices including our smartphones, cameras, computers, laptops, flash drives, and more. Even our vehicle and appliances depend on electronics.
