Here’s a 90-second short film on Bloomberg Tic-Toc with Brian Sullivan, warning of a geomagnetic storm coming from a Carrington-style coronal mass ejection, here.
Curiously, the link on Bloomberg doesn’t have the film; only the Twitter post does.
The idea is that old rocks under the Northeast (more or less under I-95) would reflect a magnetic pulse and cause a second hit on the power grid.
A similar effect would happen with an E3 level high altitude nuclear blast.

"Where Can North Korea's Missiles Reach?": Australian public broadcast reviews before Singapore talks
“Where Can North Korea’s Missiles Reach?” Now, that is.
Even as the summit in Singapore approaches, and we hope goes through, it’s good to review the inventory of DPRK missiles.
This animated film comes from Australian ABC, which is publicly funded.
The announcer does explain that the longest range DPRK missiles are largely untested, despite the alarming reports in late 2017. The short and intermediate missiles are considered well tested and the satellites less reliable. Submarines work only from a distance of about 1200 miles from DPRK.
The report does not mention EMP.
There have been reports that the North Koreans may have faked the destruction of their site last week for reporters.
