Today a huge solar storm is coming very fast from space to Earth. American scientists have warned that this storm may hit the Earth directly. This can cause power grids to come to a standstill, causing power supply to falter. Scientists have said that the Northern Lights coming from space can also be seen in New York. He told that this solar storm was seen on Saturday towards that part of the sun which is directly towards the earth.
Solar activity has increased due to this storm. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of America has issued this alert.

The US agency said that the effect of this storm will start on October 11 and its effect can remain till October 12. In Britain too, the Meteorological Department has said that colored lights or aurora can be seen from space. Astronomers have said that this storm is not expected to cause much damage. The most dangerous solar storm on Earth occurred in 1859. The most powerful geomagnetic storm destroyed telegraph networks in Europe and America. During this, some operators said that they had suffered an electric shock, while some others told that they are using their equipment without a battery.
Let us tell that Assistant Professor Sangeeta Abdu Jyoti of the University of California had told in the past that in the future, a great storm rising from the sun can end the Internet. This great storm can last from a few hours to several days. He has told that due to the solar storm, the power will go out which may return in a few days but the internet will be stalled for a long time. This will affect productivity. Sangeeta has told in her paper that due to this storm, the internet cables laid under water will get damaged, which will affect the internet between the continents. However, local and regional connections with fiber optic cables will be fine.
