(ORDO NEWS) — Magnetic storms in February 2022 will be quite strong and will begin to cover the Earth in a few days. Experts say we’re in for four days of “red” storms.
The Laboratory of Solar X-Ray Astronomy of the Lebedev Physical Institute provided data indicating that storms will occur on February 10, 11, 13, and 14. It is worth starting to prepare for them right now.
A magnetic storm is a disturbance that occurs in the planet’s magnetosphere. It happens due to the fact that the solar wind begins to exchange energy with the outer space that surrounds the Earth.
The duration of a geomagnetic storm can vary. Sometimes the phenomenon lasts only a few hours, and sometimes it can last several days.
Too powerful storms can cause equipment malfunctions, adversely affect well-being and cause deterioration in the health of many people.
The risk group includes weather-dependent people, as well as those who suffer from a variety of chronic diseases, have problems with blood pressure or the psyche.
Geomagnetic storms can cause heart rhythm disturbances, pressure changes, problems with old injuries that begin to remind of themselves again.
A very strong storm can provoke a deterioration in well-being even in those people who do not have any health problems. On such days, fatigue for no reason, insomnia, mood swings, and so on are considered common.
Doctors say that during magnetic storms you should be as careful as possible. This is especially true for those people who are at risk. It is necessary to get enough sleep during these days, not to drink coffee and alcohol, to minimize physical activity, to avoid stressful situations.
Do not engage in too serious matters that require maximum concentration. It is also necessary to have medicines on hand that will help to cope with exacerbations of chronic diseases.
