Due to the spike into 6 on the K index, the Space Weather Prediction Center has called for 'G2' geomagnetic storm conditions to be occurring. Here are the effects from a G2 geomagnetic storm.
-High latitude power issues
-Transformer damage from prolonged storms
-Spacecraft orbit issues
-Auroras seen as far south as New York and Idaho
Radio disruptions are expected to continue as the geomagnetic storm fluctuates in intensity.
