Massive solar flare in progress 3/7

Postby Sabre » Wed Mar 07, 2012 1:09 pm

One would think with all the concern about our grid we would have heard more about this but the election seems to be hogging up the other news. This is the biggest flare yet and more are expected.

This is NOT the biggest flare yet! This one is the strongest yet to be released from sunspot AR1429, http://spaceweather.com/. Acourding to Spaceweather.com, this was an X5.4 flare The biggest recorded flare was an x28+, here is a list of the 15 biggest flares, an x5 doesn't even make the list. http://www.spaceweather.com/solarflares/topflares.html
I don't see this knocking out the power grid, or cell phones.

I don't see anything serious coming from this. The Northern latitudes could have some minor disruptions on weak systems or maybe sensitive breakers. Nonetheless, it is a good reminder and opportunity to think about what you would do in a serious event. I'll bet many people who worry about these things had a deer in the headlights moment about what to do when the news broke. Think through and practice for likely scenarios for that peace of mind.
