What we should all be asking ourselves after today's mysterious cellular outage

What we should all be asking ourselves after today's mysterious cellular outage

Many Americans across the country woke up on Thursday morning without cell service — but there’s still no explanation for what caused the outage.

The most affected were AT&T customers with 50,000 outages officially reported at 7 a.m. EST, but some Verizon and T-Mobile customers were affected as well.

Now, Americans are left wondering whether or not it was a solar flare or a massive cyberattack — especially considering just yesterday there was a cyber attack on the cellular systems in Israel.

This was a small taste of what life would be like after such an attack, but a bigger attack could have devastating effects.

“One Second After” author William Forstchen has been warning about this for years.

“If you saw the number of attacks, incoming attacks on our infrastructure, on our military, it’s unrelenting,” Forstchen tells Glenn Beck. “This is just a foretaste of the future,” adding that we should be prepared for a cyber attack.

“Cyber attacks could include our water system, our electrical grid,” Glenn says, asking Forstchen how widespread this could be.

“It could be targeted to a specific or in a general offensive, like what I would call a first strike scenario,” Forstchen says. “For example, take where you are, suppose water all across the board was shut down for 48 hours because that’s all electronically controlled.”

“Would be very bad within 24 to 48 hours,” he adds.

“If you lose electricity, that’s the fundamental building block,” he continues. “Then everything goes. Water, food, medical, all of it.”
