solar flares can cause power outages






What happens if you loose power? Take a weekend and turn off the main switch to your house and you will get educated real quick.We have Na DA. Nothing but silence.unless you are prepared you will have a mounting array of problems developing.Food in the fridge will be decaying and the timer is running on the freezer.Hot and muggy as hell and not even a fan.What a drag. Solar flares can disrupt power systems as well as storms.
This week, National Geographic reported: "Under the right conditions, solar storms can create extra electrical currents in Earth's magnetosphere -- the region around the planet controlled by our magnetic field. The electrical power grid is particularly vulnerable to these extra currents, which can infiltrate high-voltage transmission lines, causing transformers to overheat and possibly burn out.
After Katrina I have gone through great pains to be prepared.Yes I have a 5500 watt gen set but i have also had it break during crunch time.Well I wouldn't be much of a prepper with only 1 backup.I also have a portable battery back up with a 1500 watt inverter and 90 watt solar panel setup. I mounted the inverter on a hand truck and was lucky enough to get 2- 100 amp hr batteries for free.I had the inverter from a few years ago that I purchased from Sam's. So I was able to have this secondary backup to keep my chest freezer running as well as some fans and all the lighting I can use.What are you gonna do when the power goes out?...............Prep on my Friends
