Largest solar storm in five years
« on: March 08, 2012, 05:48:33 PM »
"This solar storm is the largest in five years - and will bombard the Earth's magnetic field throughout Thursday."

So we are expected to have blackouts in some areas I guess

As Jonez has pointed out it can also be called a solar flare, solar storm sounds much worse than it actually is.

Oh I see.. It's only 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT equivalent ...

Solar flares still are bad for our internet no matter what.

Okatus prepare for these kinds of events by downloading the next couple thousand episodes so they're good for a few days.
