NASA warns of solar storm hitting Earth amid increased activity, fiery eruptions on Sun

NASA has issued a warning about a solar storm that is expected to hit Earth on November 25-26, 2023. The storm is caused by a coronal mass ejection (CME), which is a large expulsion of hot plasma from the Sun's corona.

The expected solar storm is classified as a G1-class geomagnetic storm, which is the weakest of the three classes of geomagnetic storms.

However, even a G1-class storm can cause some minor disruptions, such as weak power grid fluctuations and aurora borealis displays at lower latitudes than usual.


NASA is monitoring the solar storm closely and will provide updates as needed. In the meantime, there are a few things that you can do to prepare for the storm:

Be aware of the potential for power outages and have a plan in place in case your power goes out.

If you live in an area where aurora borealis displays are common, be aware of the potential for increased activity and take precautions if you plan to go outside to view them.
