Airport runway closed due to magnetic pole shifting

I am looking for new trends and updates to write in my other blog "Be a Lifesaver Of Goodness" when I bumped into this very interesting article by Liz Goodwin, Earth's magnetic pole shifts, screws up runway at Florida airport. I never thought that it can disrupt an airport operations this big that it has to shut down for 6 days. in the article, it says that it will re-open on 13 January with a new taxiway signs.

I think we just have to get used with the changes on Earth's magnetic field and that it will affect anything that uses compass.

You can read the full article here.
