Massive magnetic storm to hit EARTH on March 18; here is how it can affect you (Watch Video)
14 March, 2018, 12:52
The magnetic storm was created last week by an explosion in the Sun's atmosphere known as a solar flare, which caused charged particles from the flare to make their way to Earth.
And the impending solar storm may bring those Northern Lights much farther south than usual.
Even though a G1 minor geomagnetic storm on March 18 is nothing to worry about, on the other hand, a massive storm, such as one originally reported yesterday, could carry risky consequences. Although a geomagnetic storm is coming to the northern hemisphere, it sounds like a pretty mild one.
What are the effects of a solar storm?
Apparently, NOAA has no idea what is this all about as and how did Russians come up with that information.
Geomagnetic storms are caused by high levels of radiation which are shot by intense solar events like Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) or other solar events. These solar storms are accounted based on a scale of G1 to G5 where G1 is a weak/minor solar activity.
Usually, geomagnetic storms are cataloged in 5 different main levels depending on the magnitude, from G1 to G5 levels of geomagnetic storms' magnitudes.

The charged particles from a solar flare can create "weak power grid fluctuations" and have a "minor impact on satellite operations", the NOAA said. When compared to 1859, yet another similarly intense storm was seen in 2012 which disrupted power grids, however, it was not too unsafe since it flyby near Earth with a margin of nine days.
The SWPC says that the northern lights could be seen as far south as ME and MI thanks to the stream of charged particles heading our way.
For those who are unconvinced or fear the upcoming geomagnetic storm on March 18, they can stay prepared for any emergency similar to how they would prepare for any natural calamity.

At other times, there might be less than one solar storm per week.
Just because this storm isn't up to the hype doesn't mean that solar storms in general should be ignored.
