Solar storms could degrade GPS/can view Aurora

Understand 2 solar storms have hit earth with possible distrupting/degrading
GPS thru weekend...Upside is Aurora Bor. may be visible as far south as
New Jersey in the U.S. with midnight on U.S. east coast being optimal time
to view.
Is overcast with front coming thru here on Long Island Sound, so no
show for us...and wife does not want to jump in car and go to Canada for
weekend.
So have to enjoy vicarously thru you who view the show.
