The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills has laid out its Space Weather Preparedness Strategy, tells us that we need to be prepared, for when the sun has massive solar storm flares.
The worst case scenario of these flares is a ‘coronal mass ejection’which is where the sun will have massive eruptions where parts of the coronal will break away from the sun. This will cause massive disruptions here on Earth. We will have only approximately 12 hours of notice when this happens.
There will be solar-flare related x-rays and radiation storms that will hit the Earth and could cause the national electric grid to fail, trains will be disrupted, satellite operations will shut down, there will be increased radiation on flights and this will upset the electronic systems.
In the video there are several things that you can do to be ready. The stores will probably run out of the needed supplies when the notice is given or you will have to fight to get any of these items.
