From what I've read... If an EMP was going to be detonated, it would be done above the atmosphere in order to have a wider area of affect. Two or three would take out the eastern seaboard if placed correctly.
However, I see your point if it was detonated on the ground or a few thousand feet up. I don't think we'd worry too much since we'd probably be toast.
