Forget about Katrina…..

If you look over up there right now ( 8/24/05), you’ll see a storm the makes Katrina look like a small cloud burst.

Now, this has the possibilty of disrupting radio communications, cell phones, etc.. Now, what I am wondering is, according to a lot of things I’ve read, solar activity directly affects Earth’s weather patterns.  How will this affect Katrina and the waves?

4/20/2017 Editor’s note:  This is a post from 8/25/2005.  Katrina was a fairly powerful hurricane meandering in the Gulf of Mexico.  Within hours of me asking what the impact of this solar event would be on Katrina, it grew to a Category 5 Hurricane and absolutely destroyed New Orleans.  At this point I have no doubt whatsoever powerful magnetic solar storms affect our weather directly.
