We need to pray. If one of these huge X Flares hits the earth directly, our transformers could blow, disrupt our power grids, and we might be without power for years as we wait for more transformers to be built and the grids to be re-engineered.
Here is another site about today's X3.2 solar flare:
This latest sun storm erupted Monday at 9:11 p.m. EDT and registered as an X3.2 solar flare, one of the strongest types of flares the sun can release, space weather officials said. It came on the heels of two other recent X-class solar flares on Sunday night and Monday, all of which were sparked by a highly active sunspot on the sun's far left side.
