    The pervasive myth that an EMP strike will shut down all electronics is not supported by science or real world testing.

    What do you mean by "affect on water in streams or lakes"? Like will it contaminate it? No, EMP won't affect the water but the second and third order affects of a successful and damaging strike could result in contaminated water.

    Thanks SMS that's what I was wondering seems kind of crazy when you get to thinking about about all the different scenarios a person needs to be repaired for just in case

    Not to be concerned. I expect that the chance of being a victim of a widespread EMP event would be almost nil. Certainly a lot less chance than being hit by lightning or winning a mega lottery.

    Those Eotechs and Aimpionts might get fried too.
