Geomagnetic Storm Oct 24 – 2019 (K- Index)

“Geomagnetic disturbances are associated with significant increases in hospital admissions for depression, mental disorders, psychiatric admission, suicide attempts, homicides and traffic accidents.” [1]

“Daily data over a 1992 to 1994 period was analyzed from patients (adults and children) suffering from mental diseases and physical traumas. The effect is most marked during the recovery phase of geomagnetic storms and accompanied by the inhibition in the central nervous system.” [2]
