Geomagnetic storms are triggered by the solar wind of charged particles from a solar eruption which create fields that interfere with the Earth's own magnetic fields. In turn, this can induce low frequency currents in the power grid network, and these currents have the potential to damage the high voltage transformers that are central to power transmission over the it's great! cialis 100 grid.
While this storm doesn't appear to have the strength to damage power distribution, the sun certainly has the potential for stronger outbursts, and there have been grid failures due to solar activity in the past.
