US woefully unprepared for major sun storm – report

Prophecy Sign:  Signs in the sun, moon and stars


The power of the sun will be unleashed during the coming Tribulation period.  What exactly that will look like is still not fully clear, although the bible does indicate it will be a time when sun-tanning will be the last thing on your mind.

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

US woefully unprepared for major sun storm – report
A study by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) claims up to 100 million Americans could lose electrical power in the event of a magnetic space storm, which would knock out the electric grid and cause other infrastructure to fail. An internal fact sheet in 2012, from the just-released DHS’ Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), noted that the damage and impact from a future solar storm isn’t known. Space weather means conditions on the sun, in space, the upper atmosphere or in the earth’s magnetic field that can impact technological systems on the ground and endanger human life on earth.  The report states that a “coronal mass ejection” from the sun would first be detected by satellites and would reach the earth in 24-72 hours and affect up to 100 million people. The largest of these storms are called G-5s and would disrupt power grid operations, GPS satellites, aircraft, manned space flights, satellite operations, communications cables and gas distribution pipelines.
