Be prepared for the sun to knock out power on Thursday. Here is what the news is from CBS-
The sun erupted Tuesday evening, and the effects should start smacking Earth between Midnight and 4 a.m. CST Thursday, according to forecasters at the federal government’s Space Weather Prediction Center. They say the storm, which started with a massive solar flare, is growing as it speeds outward from the sun.
“It’s hitting us right in the nose,” said Joe Kunches, a scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He called it the sun’s version of “Super Tuesday.”
