Direct Hit from Solar Eruption: Solar Storm Forecast May 25, 2017

The Sun launched a solar storm that is now en route to Earth and expected to hit May 26. Prediction models show the impact should be sometime after noon GMT. This storm is expected to be on the weaker side due to its average speed, but it is possible for aurora to reach mid-latitudes for a short while. GPS/GNSS and amateur radio propagation issues are also expected for several days after impact. The initial storm may be followed by several mini-storms that were launched shortly after the main one so we might see effects lasting over several days. Learn details about the coming storm and how it will affect you!

Footage taken from Petrie Island on May 8th, 2017. The rising water levels have already destroyed many homes both on the Ontario and Quebec sides. Let us hope for some sunshine.

Flood Updates: River levels should start falling, but soil erosion causes Hwy. 174 closure
