Level 4 Solar Storm Hits Earth: Lack Of Attention To Fragile Power Grid Could Spell Doom For America

Every minute of every day we face a deadly threat in America, yet very few are paying attention to the problem. A downed power grid would change life as we know it more than virtually any other doomsday scenario ever could; and is far more likely than a plethora of the apocalyptic scenarios contrived by Hollywood producers.

Solar flares hit Earth on March 16, but few noticed. The solar storm or sunspot activity have made the Northern Lights effect possible. While many around the nation were debating the Blood Moon prophecy and the best vantage points to watch the expected eclipse on Friday, others were more keenly focused on the vulnerability of the power grid.

Going back three decades, the United States electrical grid loses power 285 percent more often than it did in 1984, when record keeping began. The power outages cost businesses in the United States as much as $150 billion per year, according to the Department of Energy.

By most estimates, it would take a minimum of three months to possibly an entire year, to garner new transformers after a power grid failure. Like most things we buy at the store, transformers are not made in America. If a grid-down scenario impacts the entire planet, the companies in China and Germany where such components are made, will not be able to manufacture or ship the parts to the United States.
