    Reminds me of the book, “One Second After” – EMP strikes and within almost no time at all a whole lotta people start dying en masse. ‘Twas one of the books that really lit a prepping fire under my ass. If it weren’t for our modern essentials of electricity/medicine/tech, we’d probably have a fraction of the population we do now. Sobering.

    One of the local news choppers showed a generator next to the AC unit.

    Still unclear if they had power but lost AC, as a cook at the facility said he was cooking in the kitchen
