The Space Weather Prediction Center issued a warning for a large geomagnetic storm on Wednesday morning.
The NOAA organization said the primary areas that would be affected would be in the northern portion of the northern hemisphere.
Some of the storm’s potential effects were power system voltage irregularities, possible false alarms triggered on security systems, and problems with GPS systems.
The storm could also impact spacecraft and cause orientation problems in satellites.
The warning also said that the storm could push the area where the Aurora could be seen as far south as Pennsylvania to Iowa to Oregon.
The main intensity of the storm was supposed to have affected the planet just before 6:30 a.m. but the storm was reported to still be in progress at 9 a.m.
The storm was listed as a G3 on the NOAA storm scale, which is considered large, but not the most severe.
