Magnetic Storm Havoc. Counting losses?
Default Magnetic Storm Havoc. Counting losses?

Hey Guys.

I was wondering. Did anyone of you experience losses and damages during the recent magnetic storm, as of 27th ... 28th September 2019?

I know of at least two bizarre cases of audio equipment failure (here locally) from within that specific time-frame. Not to mention a less than perfect frame of mind / health condition of some of the older people in my vicinity.
Comments, inputs?

A magnatic storm? Really? No reports of any kind here.
Maybe in susceptible areas only, but surely not in general.


Suits in the lounge better.

We had a storm with a few lightning strikes in the area a year ago.
Friend that lives less than a kilometer away lost every electrical device.
His fuse box, the meters, the circuit breakers, the house lighting, hot water, fridge, computers.

Took over a week for them to even get electricity supply back to his street.

And yet we had no issues at all.

I heard that there's a strange increase in alien craft sightings for the month of September.
Honest.
