Photon Guy, Firstly, the NORKs don’t have enough weapons to do a “full scale nuclear assault against the USA” Nor do they have the throw-weight in missile technology, yet.

What they do have is the ability, as you pointed out, to launch an EMP attack over Kansas. (Well, they probably could do so) Rest assured, though, that the US certainly does have the ability to detect a NORK missile launch the moment it leaves the pad. Regardless of the size, no matter how small… we’ll see it. Should one come toward the USA, our response will be to put our nuclear forces on immediate full alert. There’s no congressional notification for this. President Trump has his Warrant Officer with the Football close at hand, 24/7, just for this contingency. In my opinion a LAUNCH or a NO LAUNCH decision would be made well before the attacking missile got over Kansas, and would be executed just as quickly.

Terrorism & other Man made disasters • Re: NK- Tuning In, and Situational Awareness

Being a Sheriff’s Deputy I can’t stay at home… gotta be at work. The good thing is that I wear my hiking boots at work, and can walk home if need be (EMP or some other crazy event) as it is only about a dozen miles. My BOB is actually just a Get My Butt Home bag, biggest content is a full 100 oz. water bladder, a wind-up survival radio (am / fm / uhf) and a change of socks.

What I actively do these days to monitor the situation is tapping into the ex-military network I’m a member of, in addition to keeping my work radio turned on.

Whole house is electric (no gas utility in the area, and opted to not go with having a propane truck coming to the house) with grid-tied Solar with large battery backup. The whole house is on battery backup if necessary, but for the range, the AC/furnace, and the clothes drier, as those 220V beasts will drain the batteries pronto. The well pump is 220V, but is on the battery, as is the fridge.
Small 110V cooktop is in the back of the pantry for if / when needed.
If everything just goes to hell, I’ve got a rocket stove that I’ve cooked a great deal on; a limb lopper and woods are 20′ outside the door.
The only “gas” I’ve got is a couple of white gas cookstoves, and a couple of gallons of fuel.

Good assessment, for either a ground burst or an airburst weapon. Problem is that since NK lacks sophistication in delivery means (accuracy and re-entry) their probable method of attack would be a high airburst… a very high airburst, with the aim of achieving an EMP.

Weapon yield doesn’t have to be very high… a 10 or 20 Kt bomb is capable of producing a quite large effect on the ground.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_electromagnetic_pulse The Wiki on the topic covers the subject pretty well, and is accurate enough for general knowledge of the expected effects expected from this type of attack.
