Power systems: : widespread voltage control problems and protective system problems can occur, some grid systems may experience complete collapse or blackouts. Transformers may experience damage.
Spacecraft operations: may experience extensive surface charging, problems with orientation, uplink/downlink and tracking satellites.
Other systems: pipeline currents can reach hundreds of amps, HF (high frequency) radio propagation may be impossible in many areas for one to two days, satellite navigation may be degraded for days, low-frequency radio navigation can be out for hours, and aurora has been seen as low as Florida and southern Texas (typically 40° geomagnetic lat.)**.
Many people have laughed and tried to say that “their” science was the only science. A lot of armchair scientists who have never taken a real physics class in their lifetime like to speak a lot of things they just simply do not know. The idea that solar flares, coronal mass ejections and solar prominences could create such chaos here on earth destroys many beliefs that people have, but we can no longer argue facts and data. I’m not by any means saying that all seismic activity is related to the sun. This is simply to point out what I have observed.

I’d like to start off this thread by saying that it took me quite some time and a lot of observation to see the correlation that I’m about to layout. ..................
