Homemade Faraday cage?? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cage not sure on feasibility on this being done to survive a major catastrophe, but I think Mythbusters made one out of brass (maybe copper?) mesh for their cellphone on an airplane myth and it worked for them (if my memory serves me right)...only thing I can think of

Either line your box with lead or wrap it with copper wire and ground it.

Here's my idea:
A rebar reinforced concrete box covered with brass. Along the inside walls are anti-static bags. Inside the box is a microwave wrapped in copper wire. Inside the microwave are your important electronics.

BEAT THAT!
