NASA reports major geomagnetic flare–expect outages

This morning NASA reported that the sun has released an enormous flare that will disrupt satellite communications and cause the rerouting or cancellation of air flights. Solar flares release magnetic energy which when it collides with the Earth’s magnetic field causes electrical interference. Should you expect these possibilities for the next 48 hours:

  • Difficult cell phone communications
  • Slow Internet
  • GPS inaccuracy

These events are expected to begin occurring about Noon today.
