A significant solar flare, an M7, was observed at 13UT on the 18th of
April. A fast moving CME was seen in association with this event that
is expected to impact the Earth on the 20th of April. This is combined
with an earlier, slower moving CME expected at a similar time. The
combination of these events is expected to cause significant
Geomagnetic activity at the Minor to Major storm level and may cause
impairment to HF radio propagation. Updates on this event will be
given as new information is received.
