Strong solar storm hitting Earth

Strongest solar storm since 2005 is hitting Earth. The solar flare occurred at about 11 p.m. EST Sunday and will hit Earth with different effects and will continue through Wednesday.

The radiation is mostly a concern for satellite disruptions can cause communication problems for polar-traveling airplanes.
Finally the coronal mass ejection, the plasma from the sun itself, will hit. The plasma may cause much of the noticeable problems on Earth, such as electrical grid outages.

The solar storm will cause auroras to be seen north of Earth, the northern lights, but they might not dip too far south this time.
