On Earth magnetic storm began

Kr index of geomagnetic fluctuations reached the notch 6, reported the Institute for Applied Geophysics of the Russian Hydrometeorological Service. Notch 5 - the minimum level, which is considered to be a storm. Kr-index is measured with the help of magnetic network cells.

The reason for the current outbreak of the storm, it is ejection of solar plasma - a cloud of charged particles "shock" in the Earth's magnetosphere and causes ripples.

Storm could lead to problems with high voltage electrical equipment and also cause interruption of radio communications. Storm, also may adversely affect the health of people with cardio - vascular disease.
