                    **** GEOMAGNETIC STORM ****
 
 
   Strong geomagnetic storm conditions are in progress. These
   levels of activity are possibly the result of a shock observed
   in the solar wind on Oct 21 at 01:38UT (Oct 20 at 07:38 p.m.
   MDT) originating from a mass ejection on the Sun Oct 18. This
   level of disturbance routinely causes power grid fluctuations,
   increased atmospheric drag and surface charging on satellites,
   intermittent navigation system problems, signal fade of
   high-frequency (3-30 MHz) radio signals, and auroral displays
   at mid-latitudes.
