Why a power grid attack is a nightmare scenario

Prophecy Sign:  Perilous times and events

What will you do when all goes dark??
Power grid terrorism, nuclear power plant terrorism, even our own sun acting in strange ways, (CME's).....all could result in a darkened world, (or a location near you).  And the result of no power in our electrical dependent world would mean chaos. By definition, a perilous event.  

People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. Luke 21:26 NIV

Why a power grid attack is a nightmare scenario
Stores are closed. Cell service is failing. Broadband Internet is gone. Hospitals are operating on generators, but rapidly running out of fuel. Garbage is rotting in the streets, and clean water is scarce as people boil water stored in bathtubs to stop the spread of bacteria. And escape? There is none, because planes can’t fly, trains can’t run, and gas stations can’t pump fuel. This is the “nightmare scenario” that lawmakers have been warning you about.

The threat of an attack on the nation’s power grid is all too real for the network security professionals who labor every day to keep the country safe. “In order to restore civilized society, the power has got to be back on,” said Scott Aaronson, who oversees the Electricity Subsector Coordinating Council (ESCC), an industry-government emergency response program. While cybersecurity experts and industry executives describe such warnings as alarmist, intelligence officials say people underestimate how destructive a power outage can be.

Nuclear threats in US worse than previously known — study
Conflicting with a prior industry study, a new analysis claims 96 nuclear facilities in the US are less safe than reported, citing risks such as terrorism and sabotage. The study says there remain lessons to be learned from the Fukushima disaster. Neglect of the risks posed by used reactor fuel, or spent nuclear fuel, contained in 96 aboveground, aquamarine pools could cost the US economy $700 billion, cause cancer in tens of thousands of people as well as compel the relocation of some 3.5 million people from an area larger than New Jersey, a study released May 20 finds.

Is the Sun DISINTEGRATING? NASA spots monster hole open up on our star

NASA has revealed that a massive hole, measuring more than ten per cent of the Sun's surface area, has opened up on our star. The remarkable footage was captured by the US space agency's Solar Dynamics Observatory between May 17 and 19. The video shows a giant dark area on the star's upper half, known as a coronal hole. A NASA spokesman said: "Coronal holes are low-density regions of the sun’s atmosphere, known as the corona.  "Because they contain little solar material, they have lower temperatures and thus appear much darker than their surroundings. "Coronal holes are visible in certain types of extreme ultraviolet light, which is typically invisible to our eyes, but is colorised here in purple for easy viewing." NASA says the huge hole is actually not of great concern, but it remains unclear why the coronal holes actually form.
