I'm no expert so I'll just say: Is that considered a bad one?
MINOR STORM WARNING: A CME is heading for Earth. The relatively slow-moving storm cloud left the sun on Aug. 22nd and looks like it will take 4 days to cross the sun-Earth divide. NOAA forecasters estimate a 15% to 20% chance of polar geomagetic storms on Aug. 26-27 when the CME arrives.

Back in 2010, that was the current thinking, but if you'll take a glance at this current reference there are clearly some serious scientists who are questioning and offering a different view.
A moderately strong M5.9 solar flare was surprisingly observed Sunday morning at 12:17 UTC around region 2151 located in the southeast quadrant near the east limb. The event was eruptive and a coronal mass ejection became visible soon after in the latest LASCO coronagraph imagery. Because of the location near the east limb, the plasma cloud is likely directed to the east and away from Earth. A CME tracking model released by the Goddard Space Flight Center confirms this. There should be little to no impact on our geomagnetic field.
Not exactly. Not really "major." The NCGT is a rather small, fringe group which doesn't like plate tectonics. They have backslapping get togethers and put out a newsletter. www.ncgt.org...
All teasing aside, although it is one man's blog, it was presented at a major conference of seismologists this spring
