Blackout USA Review. Are You Prepared to Survive the Darkness?

Blackout USA

What if there is a blackout in your home and the lights never come back? Blackout USA can help you be prepared for such an eventuality.

There is a time when the lights went out in our town for three good days. I think those were the longest nights I ever had. On the first day, all the ice in the fridge had almost melted and I knew the food would go bad but I didn’t know how I could save it all. I ate the much I could but eventually I had to throw most of it out. The rooms were getting hot because there was no air conditioning, I was taking cold showers which I hate, and every night I would leave the light switch on hoping I would wake up and the lights would be back on. After three horrible days, the lights were back on and I wondered what I could have done to prepare myself better. Then one day I came across a book, Blackout USA and it gave me insight on a lot of things I didn’t know about.


Power outages aren’t a common thing but when they happen they can last a few hours or overnight. And when the lights come back on you feel relieved and life continues as usual. What if the lights went out and they never came back on, what would you do then? We live in a world that is so reliant on electricity that even the smallest task or machine in your home has to be powered by electricity. In the olden times, people didn’t know much about electricity and life went on as normal. We operate in a world that is ran on electricity from your smartphone to the car you drive to work every day. What happens if there are an EMP attack and all electronics stop working?

What is Blackout USA all about?
