Solar Storm Could Cause Power Disruptions and More!

The NOAA has issued a severe warning after recording several Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and solar flares from a solar storm observed this week, and observed that additional solar storms could still occur.

These pulses have the potential to disrupt communications, the electric power grid, navigation, and radio and satellite operations. The last storm situations of this magnitude were observed in 2003, causing power outages in Sweden and damaging transformers in South Africa.

The current effects and intensity of the storm won’t be known until later today but keep and eye out and protect your electronics! Consider unplugging major electronics when not in use and be prepared for potential power disruptions.
