Of the “We Love Enchantress” Panstarrs Extreme Weather

SS: extreme weather from the “we love enchantress” panstarrs x-flare and auroras continue for ten days now. tornados are common in oklahoma however the F5 tornado that spawned right after the auroras was a little more extreme. i do believe the x-flare and coronal mass ejection that interacted with our magnetosphere was the initial cause of the extreme tornado outbreak we have seen the last several days. i think we might ponder about the effects of the methane in our atmosphere if could effect the extremes of these events.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: A G2-class (Kp=6) geomagnetic storm is in progress following the arrival of an interplanetary shock wave on May 31st. The source of the shock is not known; it might have been a minor CME that left the sun without drawing attention to itself. The impact sparked auroras across many northern-tier US states. This photo, for instance, comes from Christopher Griffith in Baxter, Minnesota:

Large clouds are seen as a tornado passes south of El Reno, Oklahoma May 31, 2013. Violent thunderstorms spawned tornadoes that menaced Oklahoma City and its already hard-hit suburb of Moore on Friday, killing a mother and her baby, and officials worried that drivers stuck on freeways could be trapped in the path of dangerous twisters. One twister touched down on Interstate 40 and was headed toward Oklahoma City. REUTERS/Bill Waugh (UNITED STATES – Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

    SS: the solar flares cme’s interacted with the magnetoshphere and these massive tornados spawned. solar flare cme’s have magnetic properties effects on the magnetosphere and the twisting of the magnetosphere can cause severe weather. if we look back at november of 2011 snowstorm blizzard we can see this is not the first time we have seen cme’s cause severe weather. this time it was tornados. i think we are well on the way this theory is proven.

    WEEKEND CME STRIKES: Over the weekend, a pair of CMEs hit Earth–one on May 18th (0100 UT) and another on May 19th (2250 UT). The impacts, especially the first one, rattled Earth’s magnetic field and sparked Northern Lights visible as far south as Colorado. Some of the brightest appeared over Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where photographer Chris Cook took this self-portrait:

A massive storm front swept north through the central United States on Sunday, hammering the region with fist-sized hail, blinding rain and tornadoes, including a half-mile wide twister that struck near Oklahoma City. News reports said at least one person had died. REUTERS/Gene Blevins (UNITED STATES – Tags: DISASTER ENVIRONMENT TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

    A huge tornado approaches the town of Moore, Oklahoma, near Oklahoma City, May 20, 2013. A massive tornado tore through the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore on Monday, killing at least 51 people as winds of up to 200 miles per hour (320 kph) flattened entire tracts of homes, two schools and a hospital, leaving a wake of tangled wreckage.
