Just doing a little research online now, it seems the electronics have to be fairly close, about 150 feet. It also doesn't appear there's a lot you can do to protect from it. Consumer electronics are just not protected against emp, and most surge protectors and uninterruptable power supplies won't help. The good news is it's not as likely to take out your hard drive or CPU as it is your ethernet card or router. I'd say the damage I experienced was pretty typical. An inconvenience, but not devastating.
Still a good idea to unplug them.
