Xclass flare tonite

Level 2 Xclass flare tonite. North America and Europe. 

Chances of it affecting electronics like laptops is higher.

Suggestions are to put phones, computers in a Faraday cage are recommended. Faraday cages can be made quickly if needed. I just heard about this a half hour ago, so improvised or scrounge crafted for me right now. 

Laser printer, laptop, tablet and phones go into my large tickle trunk, wrapped in tin foil. This larger travel trunk is made of metal which is one of the reasons I bought it at the garage sale. 

Scrounge crafted cages you might do would be; everything wrapped in aluminum/tin foil and set into, microwave (unplugged from wall), large metal garbage pail (also called an alarm clock by most combat arms people). If nothing else, into the foil and under piles of blankets. Fill up water jugs and fill gas tanks (if you can afford to do so). 

Edited in… Metal pots and lids, metal bowels, cookie tins, bread pans, anything metal that can be sealed. Keep items away from the wall using cardboard or foam. To be even more sure, wrap metal tape, the type for duct work around the rims.

Lots of luck and see you on the other side! 

Cheers wild_E

  1. Hi Wild E, I just saw this today and electronics seems to be working. I guess we dodged a bullet this time! Second one this week, right?

    • 3rd this week, though this was the largest. About three years ago, an Xclass flare of about 4-5 bathed the space we had been in just the day before. This even followed the Earth for 3 days straight. That would have been catastrophic, we have been so close so many times in the last 4 years alone.

So What do you think?
