Solar Weather Can Have an Impact on Your Survival

I’m sure we all love the thought that it’s spring in the Northern Hemisphere. Sunshine and warmer weather are on their way. But volatile stormy weather also comes to many parts of the country.

You may already know the sun has weather, too. And it affects us here on Earth.

NASA scientists predicted 2013 could be a bumpy year, since we’re in the maximum of solar cycle 24. But things haven’t been as active as predicted. They’re thinking now that we could be in the trough of a double peak solar maximum. Could this be the calm before solar storms?

You can stay on top of solar weather by subscribing to FlareAware’s phone text or voice alert service to get the most current alerts to space weather storms and conditions.

FlareAware reminds us that, as with all Earth based weather forecasts, solar weather changes on a daily and hourly basis. Predictions are subject to change at any moment. That’s why the FlareAware alert system should be an important tool in your arsenal for following solar weather.

A massive solar storm could blip out electronics and the power grid. But even if nothing so drastic happens, there are still potential problems the sun can cause.

Here’s what I mean. Due to risk factors associated with geomagnetic disturbances FlareAware has released the new Health Plus Plan designed to alert subscribers to periods of increased dangers such as…

  • 210% rise in hospitalization due to heart attack
  • 150% rise in hospitalization due to stroke
  • 160% rise in occurrences of chest pain and irregular heart beat
  • 10% – 15% rise in mortality rates, or death, due to the complications mentioned above
To add to these there are also recorded increases of depression, insomnia, suicide, homicide and other violent crimes. That’s good reason to consider the benefits of knowing when you’re at risk. Protect yourself and your family from further dangers from that otherwise inviting springtime sun.
