FEMA Warns US To Prepare For 10 Years Off Electricity Grid After ‘Perfect Solar Storm’

Fact checked

A perfect solar storm similar to one that slammed into Earth in 1859 will knock out the United States electric grid for up to 10 years, according to a warning in an unpublished report from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The 36-page report was posted this month at GovernmentAttic.org, which uncovers old government documents that often are acquired via Freedom of Information Act requests. The 2010 document was titled, “Mitigation strategies for FEMA command, control, and communications during and after a solar superstorm.”

The storm that hit Earth in 1859 was dubbed the Carrington Event and caught telegraph machines – the most advanced technology of the day – on fire.

Predicting what would happen if that type of solar crashed into Earth in the 21st century, the document says: “Significant power grid collapses may occur in North America and elsewhere; could require 4-10 years to fully restore.”

But even a smaller storm, like the one that hit Earth in 1921, would “could cause large-scale power grid collapse” if it hit today.

The report predicts that Internet, cable TV and telephone service would shut down. Cell phone service also would quickly be lost.

Approximately 60% of the cellular towers in the U.S. have battery backup only for 2-24 hours,” the report states. “As these towers lose power, large portions of the cellular network will begin to fail. Urban and populated suburban areas are more likely to have cell towers with generator backup with fuel reserves ranging from 1-7 days, depending on location and equipment owner.”

FEMA never published the report, which is dated December 2010. Off The Grid News reached out to an expert on the grid who has frequent contact with government agencies. This person said the report appeared to be legitimate.

“This paper recreates the 1859 event today using the latest research to explain and understand: 1) The nature and effects of radio blackouts, solar radiation storms, and geomagnetic storms; 2) their potential for cascading effects on global power and telecommunications systems; and, 3) the implications for FEMA …in planning for and responding to such an event,” the report reads.

A Carrington-type event would generate massive amounts of energy that would blow out transformers. It is the replacement of these transformers that is of concern to FEMA and other government agencies. Each transformer is custom-made; there are no backup parts. It is not known how many transformers there are in the U.S., but it likely is in the tens of thousands. Each one takes up to two years to build.

“Loss of key infrastructure for extended periods due to the cascading effects from a space weather event (or other disturbance) could lead to a lack of food, given low inventories and reliance on just-in-time delivery, loss of basic transportation, inability to pump fuel, and loss of refrigeration,” is how a 2008 report from the National Academy of Sciences described the aftermath of a major solar storm.

  1. Like UV WHITEOUT and five melted leaching nuclear reactors plus toxic hot spots coast to coast and worldwide unending

  2. ????
    We cannot believe our media or propaganda liar Biden and party.

    “will knock out the United States electric grid for up to 10 years”

    Another climate lover scam?

    • As if America alone has electricity grids. Its obviously rhem thinking they can extort more money from taxpayers by terrorising them.

  3. explain to me how solar radiation is going to knock out the grid for 10 years?
    Don’t we have grounding wires at each support along the grid to drain the static electricity build up?
    That is my understanding.

      • Faraday cages can be installed around any electronic computers that control the grid. It is all so easy. But you don’t want to understand what is really going on.

      • Let see, our cars always survive these solar flares, our computers survive, but the Grid components can’t. Hmmmmm.

      • If the power companies think the Russians are going to hack the power grid and shut us down, then why are they not isolating the power grid from the internet? It is an easy thing to do, when you have plenty of time to do it. Banks do it all the time, they isolate their networks from the internet. No, they want to knock out the power grid in the future to kill us or harm us. ‘They” meaning the central bank owners. They pay people like your self to get on the comment section and attempt to psyop people like me back into the shadows. But there are people that do it for free.
        So how does someone get to be an Anonymous commenter? Do they pay you? What gives with that?

      • Or we can just print out the Sun’s solar flare and intensity activity chart for the next ten years and look at that. They are known to very predictable to totally accurate.

  4. The remote viewers saw it a long time ago, when they looked into the future.
    It is much worse than they are telling us. It has to do with what the illuminati (aliens) did to the sun.
    It is the reason 2023, will be the end of all life on this earth.
    What will also happen is just karma, for all america has done in their wars and oppression to the civilian populations of other nations.
    It will be horrible for america. Most all of it will happen from natural disasters. Karma is the result of human actions and choice. The karma from those actions and choices, always comes as natural catastrophes.
    Better to pay before the end, than in Hell afterward.
    3rd world nations will be better off. They will finally receive justice from God, for what america did to them.
    The big powerful nations are doomed, when you try to escape to the 3rd world, they all will reject americans.
    A little taste of what is to come to the US: Sarah Hoffman’s Detailed Vision of the End Days- (EMP Attack, Russian Attack On America, End Time Christian Refuge Places and More, Gail’s vision:
    “After the economy collapses I saw marauding bands or gangs running around. People just go crazy and they start rioting, looting and killing because they’re angry. Everything they know of value on this earth is being taken away from them within a few short days. We’ve had so much in this country, more than any other country in the world. They’re angry at first and then they go crazy because they’re hungry. In a very short period of time there will be a famine like we’ve never seen before. I believe for the most part this famine is brought upon us. It’s premeditated and planned out. No one works. No trucks bring food deliveries. Famine is brought on very quickly as stores are cleaned out within hours. There is nothing to eat so people kill others because they are hungry. After a time they begin to kill because they enjoy it. All of them become very depraved. I saw these marauding bands doing awful sadistic sexual acts, cannibalism, eating people while they are still alive and kicking. I always wonder how the Lord would determine who the righteous and who the wicked were. There is a little bit of bad in the best of us, and a little bit of good in the worst of us. He doesn’t decide that, we do that by our choices depending on how we react to these things that are happening to us. For example, if we saw some of these military people or marauding bands torturing or killing family members I was told that I can have no anger, hatred, bitterness or revenge in my heart for what these people are doing or I would take the first step of being like they are.”.
    There is still time to stop this now, to receive God’s mercy. The future can change if you repent and pray for forgiveness.

  5. Over here on the planet of the apes, we do not need a perfect solar storm to take out our electrical grid.
    We have perfect corrupt politicians who has intermittently kept us off the grid since 2007 when “democracy” started blooming.

  6. jossy the fake klint wah wahs the bad 100 year olt actor`s shadLOW and Toad man on zink and egg clots NEED to learn how the earth`s feild works as all that egg&zink an`t buildin no brain workxs there RAT guySS
