An international panel of experts led by NOAA and sponsored by NASA has released a prediction that Solar Cycle 24 will peak in May 2013.

The 1859 geomagnetic storm, the Carrington Event, electrified transmission cables and set fires in telegraph offices. The National Academy of Sciences concluded that if a similar storm happen today, it would damage the US Power Grid, blowing out transmission substation transformers requiring 4 to 10 years recovery. http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2009/29may_noaaprediction/ Reading the Commission to Assess the Threat to the United States from Electronic Pulse Executive Report, all electronics will fry; including vehicles.

 

FEMA and nonprofit organizations have warehouses full of MREs and supplies, but the majority of the citizens will not have a way to get the needed supplies. FEMA should bring the supplies out of the mega warehouses and start storing them closer to the living and working communities; perhaps non-profit organizations like churches. FEAM should also supply information on how to grow food and be self efficient.

 

 

If we get hit with a direct Class X CME, I see mass death by famine and dehydration; in a matter of weeks. I would like to help store shipping containers underground full of MREs, water, blankets, seed, tools and other supplies; to help out my local community when the power grid and all electronics stop working. I need some shipping containers for starters.
