A quick search for “Solar Storm” brought up 2 very interesting videos. The first is a National Geographic special about solar storms, which mentions the effect on the power grid—and also touches on the issue of timing. The second is an actual news report which uses some of the footage from the first, and points out how alarming this all is.
