Solar storm horror: Blast from Sun threatens power grid failure and satellite chaos


Share post:

Ultra-fast solar winds that were blasted out of the Sun are darting towards Earth and could come into contact with its geomagnetic field. 

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned that the G1-class storm could cause power grid failures, disrupt satellites and disrupt the migrations of animals if this happens.

While this has the potential to cause disruption, the incoming solar storm is in the lowest ranked category in terms of its intensity, meaning it is considered a minor storm. 

Solar storms are ranked from G-1 minor to G-5 extreme, but even the minor storms threaten disruption when they come into contact with satellites.

This is a breaking story. More to follow.
