Big solar storm hits earth

One of the strongest solar storms hit the earth on Thursday, March 8, with few of the feared effects seen, the Wall Street Journal reported. While solar storms don’t harm people, they can disrupt technology. Charged particles can “disturb utility grids, airline flights, satellite networks and global-positioning services, especially in northern areas.” The solar storm struck at about 6 am EST, fortunately in a direction that causes the least amount of problems, the WSJ said in its report.
