Will check back on the direction of CME later tonight and tomorrow morning.

Small odds but big impact.

That is because magnetic north is not the same as rotational north on this planet. Canada has that true north claim that is probably unrelated.

Storm is still forecasted as a G3 which is respectable but not transformer popping level.

24-Hour Observed Maximums
G3 (Strong) Geomagnetic Storm Impacts

Power systems: Voltage corrections may be required, false alarms triggered on some protection devices.
Spacecraft operations: Surface charging may occur on satellite components, drag may increase on low-Earth-orbit satellites, and corrections may be needed for orientation problems.
Other systems: Intermittent satellite navigation and low-frequency radio navigation problems may occur, HF radio may be intermittent, and aurora has been seen as low as Illinois and Oregon (typically 50 geomagnetic lat.).

R3 (Strong) Radio Blackout Impacts

HF Radio: Wide area blackout of HF radio communication, loss of radio contact for about an hour on sunlit side of Earth.
Navigation: Low-frequency navigation signals degraded for about an hour.

S2 (Moderate) Solar Radiation Storm Impacts

Biological: Passengers and crew in high-flying aircraft at high latitudes may be exposed to elevated radiation risk.
Satellite operations: Infrequent single-event upsets possible.
Other systems: Small effects on HF propagation through the polar regions and navigation at polar cap locations possibly affected.

No matter how bad an event might be, there will always be enough power available to weld shut the bunkers of the rich& famous and the political class.

Food, water, ammo, bad attitude, medical supplies, check!

I would not like to be a politician, nor ex movie star, if this shit ever happens.

With any luck whatever initiates the "event" helps the San Andreas fault line to cleave California off into the ocean as last of Files members and family members whose job forces them to be there cross onto new west coast known as Nevada. Once country restabilizes be a lot of work building new ports with most of the LGBT, socialist, scientology, anti-gun mentality morons feeding fish. Washington D.C. just does not have the physical space to hold enough nuts to survive the indigenous population uprising when get hungry and cold.

Energy equivalent to a billion hydrogen bombs? Does Tump know about this? The sun can simply not have that kind of firepower and continually threaten our existence, we must act. I hope he moves a carrier group in proximity ASAP.

Note paragraph 5.
http://fortune.com/2017/09/11/china-...n-otc-trading/
The group I work with are watching all these pieces. The next big item is the election next month.
This is part of the clues to the internal strife going on in China. Old guard vs new. China may indeed be headed to internal strife and civil war. They are struggling to keep their power and people under control. Even the middle class was dumping the yen. They keep showing in China the film "The coming war with the United States". They are the ones helping the funny guy with his "up grades". Russia has moved items to the far east in the last few months.
The question is what will the Chinese leadership do as they loss power. The best distraction is war. Their long term plans are to have us out of the way. If they use the nut job to needle us into a response, they can use us as the bogie man and maybe kill two birds with one missile. Some say, well they need our money (debt). What is cheaper and more effective? Lose power and control and spend Trillions to have a military to take us on or get it over with in a few years,get rid of your pain population and have control of all of the western Pacific.
Just FYI and pay attention to what the other hand is doing.

I thought the fat man was getting his help from Estes Model Rockets ordered from the internet. I think as long as we have a couple Ohio Class submarines loaded down with Trident II missiles that the Chinese will not do jack anything, especially with a lunatic in the White House. Just ask Hitlary or any liberal as Trump might start punching buttons on the football like a 1980's legal secretary at an IBM Selectric typewriter. 14 missiles per boat with eight warheads per bird jus dump half a load and there is not much left of China to control. Say we keep the new dam and sell all that electricity to someone that we can get along with or use it as trade bait with the Russians. Tell them they can tap to hydro plant if stay out of the fracas. Putin might be a megalomaniac but he doesn't want to die of anything but old age.

Having a "Mad Dog" in the White House has its pluses.

If they would just invite me to an event and fumble the football. It needs easy to read buttons. Button #1: Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Wuhan, Tianjin, Shenyang, and which other two are important. Button #2: P'yongyang, P'yongsong, Hamhung, Wonsan, Kanggye, Hyesan, Ch'ongjin and Namp'o. Tell our folks on the DMZ to get as far south as fast ans they can, giving them as much stand off territory as possible. Soon as the dust settles to send strategic bombers with conventional weapons, maybe half a dozen MOAB's over Kaesong and Haeju as just too close to Seoul to send warheads that far south. Button #2: Yemen, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria assuming warheads properly dispersed to inflict maximum casualties with least fallout and intrusion of Israeli borders and territory.

Invite me to a meet and greet, accidentally leave the briefcase open with little smiley faces on those three buttons. As each missile begins descent and warheads separate toward designated targets announce to the world that the football was fumbled and the lunatic that picked it up still has the darn thing so do your best not to create any negative news as the stupid thing was built with Chinese circuits using Apple software and its stuck in the armed and can't be bypassed mode. Meanwhile let me take it home and rat-hole it away with the rest of my rare and valuables saying Trump is so ignorant just forgot to keep it locked up and lost the list of people at the party while sitting on the crapper Tweeting but that it still has direct connection to the other nine missiles on that boat and a few other Ohio Class boats as well, their just not sure which because Apple won't release the source code.

Pyongyang also released a technical report accurately describing a Super-EMP weapon.

I doubt the city that's #1 on my Korean list of cities to nuke released said technical report but the resemblance is uncanny. If a hillbilly can look at a map and figure out relatively easily how to prioritize eight targets for a Trident II inside of Korea, imagine how much better someone in basement of Langley or Pentagon could choose the priority targets. Usually megalomaniacs place their strategic items in big population centers as most civilized people find it difficult to nuke the eight largest cities based on just population due to colatteral damage to civilians. There are no civilians or innocents in this. We invaded Iraq over idea they "might" have WMD's.

Well fat boy not only has them, is testing them, bragging about them, improving them and increasing his number of devices. If I were Trump would call my head General in Korea and tell him to come up with a plan to dissapear like a ghost from the DMZ when weatherman gave a forecast for favorable winds away from South Korea, leave a bunch of manniquins or inflatable sex dolls in uniforms at posts and have timers turning lights on and off at random like we are still on our bases and soon as last significant asset got far enough south punch up a pair of Tridents. 16 warheads with some relative decent intel for targeting should do it and bet an Ohio Class boat could snug up close enough to the cost flight time from launch til detonation would not even give fat boy time to get up from the all-you-can-eat buffet and get to a bunker.

History is a darn good teacher and he who strikes first has a definite advantage. Fat Boy seems like the kind that would sell one or two of his old toys bored with to ISIS and then where would we be? Those lunatics would have them on boats headed toward New York City as fast as could get them loaded. If the United States pushes the button first with England, Israel and a couple others backing our play the Russians will sit back and watch the entire thing and then cut a few deals on the back side to not overly protest at next UN Council meeting. Of course I could say something about what should happen at next big UN meeting as certain people happen to have not shown up. Sure the Brits and we have a couple of UN representatives worth telling would be a good week to call in sick. Somebody needs to go find Teddy Rosevelts "Big Stick" and the documents that go with it and mail some fresh copies with a few updates. It's sad but if try talking to anyone under 35 about Teddy Roosevelt all they know is "San Juan Hill" and a cute story about a bear. Discuss the Civil War and they are positive it was 100% about slavery and been told that the Holocaust is not taught in public schools anymore. Whats the quote about people that forget history are bound to repeat it???

Modern history teaches if you blow up a few Marines the U.S. will leave Beruit. Shoot down a couple of helicopters and we will leave Somolia. Keep us involved long enough in a place like Iraq and the American people will elect a president who promises to cut and run like a Baptist preacher caught in a whore house. If U.S. Presidents believe in a mission they are going to have to lay with it and get it done before another election comes up. Bush should have pulled all our troops from Iran and Afganistan asap when saw Nobama had won with his promise to bring the troops home in 100 days and nuked both of them into the stone age day before the Nobama inauguration. That would have been a nice present to leave for the @$$. If people will just read or re-read the Old Testament if the Israelis had followed God's commands world would be a much more stable place right now. We are due some Old Testament warfare.
