1 Replies and 2365 Views Solar Storms and Underground Rocks (FB) �2365 �1 Started by Elmira Hello scientists, Someone read on new National Geographic there is more danger from a solar storm to some cities because of the kind of rocks that are in the ground underneath them. NG said New England, where I live, is in more danger than other places. Can you explain more and let know if I should be concerned. Thanks!
