    Default Solar storms could cause blackouts and leave Britain with £16 billion worth of damage

    Solar storms could cause blackouts and leave Britain with £16 billion worth of damage, warns Oxford University



    Solar storms could leave Britain with £16 billion worth of damage, the first economic risk analysis has found, as experts at Oxford University called for urgent updates to space weather forecasting satellites.

    Earth is vulnerable to space weather events such as solar flares which fling huge amounts of electromagnetic radiation at the planet, potentially causing severe disruption to power grids, air transport and satellite communications.

    The most severe incident - known as Ďthe Carrington Eventí - happened in 1859, shorting Telegraph circuits, starting fires and causing the northern lights to dance in the sky as far south as Hawaii.
