A recent report confirmed that the second wave of solar flare hit the Earth today, thereby escalating the risks associated with minor disruption of power outages. It has been claimed that the solar flare or x-class flare has the tendency of releasing ultraviolet and x-ray radiation, which further ionizes the Earth's upper atmosphere.
Looking at the same report, it has been claimed by Brian Murphy, with the Holcomb Observatory at Butler University: "That can have an affect on some communications and then, since the wave of particles, we're talking protons, helium, things like that streaming out at about three million miles an hour, it takes about 30 hours to reach us”.
There are chances that solar flares a lot stronger than this one would hit the earth in future, thereby making things all the more difficult for one and all, similar to what happened in Quebec in the late 80's. Prior to this one, there was another solar flare seen in the month of March. So far, there have been no reports of any kind of damage due to solar flares seen so far.
Though there are chances of stormy weekend, researchers have cleared that there is nothing much to worry about as it’s a minor event.
