12 Hours Before The End Of The World? That’s All The Warning We’d Get Before A Solar Storm, Says New Report

 

Image source: NASA

Can you cram in 12 hours all the survival essentials you would need to save your family for several months?

That’s all the warning you would have before a solar storm takes out the power grid, according to a new government report from the United Kingdom.

The Space Weather Preparedness Strategy report revealed that the warning could be as little as 12 hours before a coronal mass ejection (CME) hits Earth and sends us all back to a 1800s existence.

Geomagnetic Storming may be Possible about 4 June

 

G2 Watch for 4 June 2016

 

G2 (Moderate) Watch in Effect for 4 June UTC day

published: Wednesday, June 01, 2016 21:02 UTC

A G2 (Moderate) geomagnetic storm watch is in effect for the 4 June, 2016 UTC-day.

A recurrent coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) is likely to impact Earth with up to a G2 storming response.

This CH HSS effected Earth on 8 May (Mother's Day) with over 24 hours of geomagnetic storming up to the G3 (Strong) level.

While the geomagnetic storming is not expected to be as intense as last rotation, data analysis suggests this CH HSS is is still likely to cause geomagnetic storming up to the G2 level.

The potential for continued geomagnetic storming on into the 5 June UTC-day exists and SWPC forecasters are still evaluating data to determine if a Watch for 5 June is warranted. Keep checking our SWPC webpage for further updates and forecasts.



Geomagnetic Storming may be Possible about 4 June

published: Monday, May 30, 2016 21:01 UTC

Geomagnetic storming is possible next weekend.

A returning coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) is likely to rotate into an Earth-influential position beginning around 4 June. 

This recurrent CH HSS was responsible for the 8 May (Mother's Day) storming, when over 24 hours of G1 (Minor) to G3 (Strong) storming occurred.

Forecasters will continue to analyze this feature and determine if Watch conditions are warranted as it rotates into better view.

Keep informed as it gets closer to 4 June, by checking our website for the latest forecasts, updates, and information.

G1 (Minor) Geomagnetic Storm Watch Issued for 20 May

G1 (Minor) Watch on 20 May due to CH HSS

A G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storming watch is in effect for the 20 May UTC-day. The storming is likely, due to another coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) rotating into a favorable position.

This will result in increased solar wind speeds and a disturbed interplanetary magnetic field. Initial effects are expected later on 19 May, resulting in active conditions; with an escalation to a few, isolated periods of minor storming (G1) on 20 May. 

Geomagnetic responses are expected to return to active levels on 21 May. Continue to monitor our SWPC website for any changes to the forecast.

Secret Homeland Report Warns Solar Storm Could Leave 100 Million Without Power: “We Are Running Out of Time to Prepare”

solar-flare-orange-sun

Homeland Security officials are warning that a major coronal mass ejection, solar flare or electromagnetic pulse may be inevitable and catastrophic to modern civilization. The devastation to the electric grid and modern infrastructure could impact the lives of more than 100 million, and cause untold casualties during prolonged outages.

Fifth X-class solar flare erupts from Region 2192 - X2.0 on October 26, 2014

The largest and most interesting active region of the current solar cycle - Region 2192 ('beta-gamma-delta") - erupted on October 26, 2014 with its fifth X-class solar flare since it rotated into Earth view. The event started at 10:04, peaked at 10:56 as X2.0 and ended at 11:18 UTC. Like the previous major eruptions from this region this was a long duration event which again failed to deliver a significant CME.

Major solar flare measuring X1.6 erupts, sends Earth directed CME


http://origin-www.swpc.noaa.gov/news/activity-region-2158

A major solar flare measuring X1.6 at its peak time erupted on September 10, 2014. The source was geoeffective Active Region 2158 located almost at the center of the disk. The event started at 17:21, peaked at 17:45 and ended at 18:20 UTC.

Power Grid Down: Prepare, Survive, and Thrive After The Lights Go Out – by Tara Dodrill

 Power Grid Down: Prepare, Survive, and Thrive After The Lights Go Out  –  by Tara Dodrill

There are many reasons why we should be concerned about the repercussions of a long or short term power failure...

Increases in war and terrorism acts around the world threatening to disrupt or destroy power grids using sabotage or EMP, increases in natural disasters such as wild weather, landslides & floods as well as and increase in volcanic activity ...

It is no wonder more and more people are making preparations at home by stocking up on essentials.

Discover why threats to the power grid can put life, as we know it, at total risk.

Learn preparedness tips and techniques which will help you and your family survive after the lights go out.
