    I don't know much about solar flares but this article explains that some aspects of it is considered to be 'a new area of study' in which scientist are studying solar flares and their relationship to hurricanes and other phenomena. I remember about ten years ago, that there was a solar flare event in the summer time and as the news said, I did feel 'a thump' and a pause in my air conditioning unit and electric power source as a result of the thump. The news had cautioned that the solar flare might knock out power plants.

    Huge Solar Flare's Magnetic Storm May Disrupt Satellites, Power Grids
     
    A massive solar flare that erupted from the sun late Tuesday (March 6) is unleashing one of the most powerful solar storms in more than five years, a solar tempest that may potentially interfere with satellites in orbit and power grids when it reaches Earth….

    …a coronal mass ejection (CME), into space. The CME is not expected to hit Earth directly, but the cloud of charged particles could deliver a glancing blow to the planet....
     
    Early predictions estimate that the CME will reach Earth tomorrow (March 8) at 7 a.m. EST (1200 GMT), with the effects likely lasting for 24 hours, and possibly lingering into Friday, Kunches said….

    I have been keeping up with this for the past 5 years, and yes it is indeed interesting. I read about the one that happened in Quebec Canada in 1989 and they had no power for about 9 hours. I was like whoa. I wonder if it was bad back then, imagine how bad it could be today with all of the modern technology we have.
