Three major solar flares have occurred earlier this week causing communication blackouts. These solar flares could further affect the Earth tomorrow, reported the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
On June 13th a coronal mass ejection from one of these flares is expected to arrive at Earth. While this doesn’t cause harm directly to people, GPS and communication signals may experience disturbances and outages, according to NOAA.
Magnetic energy from the sun creates solar flares. This energy builds up on the sun’s surface and suddenly releases bursts of radiation. These types of geomagnetic storms generally produce low frequency electromagnetic fields that create disturbances in the high voltage power network, leading in severe cases to power outages, transformer damage and power harmonics that can damage low voltage power electronics inside of buildings.
