Magnetic storms in October : Scientists named dangerous dates

(ORDO NEWS) — Just a week ago, there was an incredibly strong magnetic storm, how should we prepare for another wave.

Experts say that there will be several geomagnetic storms in the middle and end of October, but they will not be as strong as at the beginning of the month.

Geomagnetic disturbances that happen to the Earth will depend entirely on those processes that take place in the sun.

When flares occur on a star in the region of its dark spots, huge streams of plasma are ejected into space, moving at enormous speed.

When interacting with the atmosphere of our planet, they become the cause of geomagnetic oscillations.

When to expect magnetic storms in October

Scientists say that solar activity will be relatively small until October 22. At the same time, on October 15, it is worth waiting for a magnetic storm, which cannot be called very strong.

A minor geomagnetic storm will occur on October 20-21.

The period October 29-31 is considered more dangerous, because the activity of the Sun will be much higher, which will provoke the occurrence of a magnetic storm of medium intensity.

It is worth paying attention to the fact that the forecast can change at any moment.

Signs of the negative impact of a magnetic storm on health

If the magnetic storm is strong enough, then its influence can be felt even by completely healthy people who are not weather-dependent.

The main symptoms include a very strong headache, weakness and apathy, dizziness, nausea, increased blood pressure, painful sensations in the joints and muscles.

How to avoid the effects of a magnetic storm

  • Eat right
  • Do not drink alcoholic beverages
  • Exercise
  • Sleep enough time
  • Do not forget to rest and change the type of activity
  • It is necessary to minimize the number of stressful situations

Weather-dependent people need to be extremely careful. If they have any health problems, they should always have the necessary medicines at hand.

It is also worth resting more during a magnetic storm and minimizing physical and psychological stress.
