Huge Solar Flare Could Disrupt Communications

"An unusual solar flare observed by a NASA space observatory on Tuesday could cause some disruptions to satellite communications and power on Earth over the next day or so, officials said."

"A geomagnetic storm could cause some disruption in power grids, satellites that operate global positioning systems and other devices, and may lead to some rerouting of flights over the polar regions".

Open Office

This is new to me and never happened to me before.

Last week I was going for 3 days training in Cleveland.
I enter the destination and it show on my gps that was 28 miles away.
