The EMP blackout is where all the power all over the world goes out due to an electromagnetic pulse.  Not too long ago a video on the internet has falsely claimed that a Department Of Defense Communications drill is going to cause the nationwide power to go out November 3 to 6 causing panic on social media. The truth is that the U.S. Army is planning to conduct a communications drill with ham radio operators starting on Nov. 4. It will have no effect on the electric power whatsoever.  Apparently, this has been going on since 2013 secretly until bloggers shared the information on social media causing every bad panic on social media. Many posts claim that the blackout is going to happen, but they are just rumors .
