The Sun’s very Active Region 1515 erupted the strongest solar flare (X-1 Class) of the 2012 Summer on Friday July 6, 2012. Radio communications were blacked out in several areas in America and a Heat Wave that began June 29 after Hurricane Level storms leveled the US Midwest continued, killing several people. Central Ohio saw approximately 600,000 power outages and work crews as far away as Canada came to help. Crews went to hospitals every night for heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

One coroner found heat related deaths during Independence Week, when 600,000 went without power on July 4th. Central Ohio reached 104 F Saturday 7/7, with heat index at 108 F. Other parts of the Midwest reached 110 F.

Australian data show much increased numbers of sun spots from

January – June 2012 over the same time period of 2011. If this trend continues, the London Summer Olympic Games in July and August could be affected with solar related blackouts and a heat wave. Peak solar effects will likely arrive to Earth in 2013.
