Solar Storm 2014: A New Carrington Event Could Fry Electronics Like An EMP From A Nuclear Bomb

Prophecy Sign:  Signs in the Sun, (moon and stars)


Well the current solar storm of this past week didn't amount to much, (we didn't think it would), but what about the next one, or the next one after that?  That is what has scientists concerned going forward.  Prophecy warns that God will allow the Sun to do some very strange things during the coming Tribulation period.

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. Revelation 16:8 NIV

Solar Storm 2014: A New Carrington Event Could Fry Electronics Like An EMP From A Nuclear Bomb
The 2014 solar storm we are now riding out on Earth has some worried the Sun’s coronal mass ejection (CME) could be as bad as another Carrington Event that fries electronics just like an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) generated by a nuclear bomb. But should anyone be worried, or is it just another opportunity to watch the pretty Aurora Borealis?
The real question is whether a future 2014 solar storm could be as bad as the estimates made for the solar storm of 1859, which is called the Carrington Event after British astronomer Richard Carrington. The electromagnetic solar storm caused telegraph lines to burst into flames, primitive “electronics” to operate without batteries, the earth to literally “boil” in some spots, and the northern lights could be seen so far down south that the Aurora Borealis allowed people to read at night. Some locals really thought the end was nigh.
