BREAKING NEWS – The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a minor solar radiation storm warning on Thursday morning following readings from a weather satellite in orbit around the Earth.  The warning is expected to last from 12:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST, Thursday afternoon.

Officials said that the warning is the result of a coronal mass ejection from the sun that happened around 10:19 p.m. EST on Wednesday as noted by radio signatures. The energetic protons were expected to reach earth within 30 minutes to just a few hours. Results from the event may include minor impacts on high frequency radio in the polar regions. However no biological or satellite issues are expected as a result of the storm based on the NOAA solar storm scales. FULL REPORT
