As bad as this damage was, it was minor in comparison
to what would happen if two EMP bombs were to explode,
over the United States, one over the eastern half and one
over the western half. This would destroy the entire electrical
grid. According to a Pentagon study, over 100 million
Americans would be dead of starvation 3 months after
this happened. A massive solar flair could do similar
damage but on an even wider basis.
