Grid Threat

Additionally, “Geomagnetic storms can impact infrastructure in near-Earth orbit and on Earth’s surface, potentially disrupting communications, the electric power grid, navigation, radio and satellite operations.”

The worry about grid capacity has been a concern for some time. These solar storms could cause blackouts. The agency said grid operators should take “protective measures.” That is, almost certainly impossible.
