The Washington Times: “Congress must stop President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran. The most important reason — Iran can threaten the existence of the United States by making an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack using a single nuclear weapon.

The shelter is designed to accommodate 6,000 people for 3 months.
