Sometimes the clouds make a beeline for Earth and when they hit they can cause geomagnetic storms, satellite outages, auroras, and power blackouts.
Algunas veces, las nubes forman una especie de fila india en dirección a la Tierra y, cuando la golpean, pueden ocasionar tormentas geomagnéticas, cortes en la transmisión de los satélites, auroras y apagones eléctricos.
Radio blackouts disrupted communications.
Apagones de radio, comunicaciones interrumpidas.
