Thanks for the scale - so do we have a forecast using the scale for this storm? Or do we just call it Minor?

It will vary locally, but I'm not sure if they have predicted anything other than the probabilities indicated.

We'll just have to wait and see.

Was just wondering as we had a brown out earler today - wasn't sure if it was the Geo storm or the snow storm that ended last nite. But if it hasn't arrived yet I suppose the brown out was due to the snow storm.

So, with all the talk of solar activity corresponding to or affecting earthquake activity on Earth, I'm suprised no one has mentioned the recent earthquake in New Zealand. Happened pretty soon after the CME, eh?
