yea but when are they saying this storm is going to take place?
a significant sideways impact at Earth could occur as early as before midnight tommorow (September 8), although more likely on September 9. Active to severe geomagnetic storming is possible.

Does anyone know what TYPE of electric power systems it could affect...??
Or would it be only the systems in orbit ? Hope not on the ground. Could we have general power blackouts???

...We never know what these X Flares can cause but, among others, this could happen:
High solar radiation, severe climate changes, blackouts of HF communications, active earthquake activity, etc.
So far, except for brief radio blackouts, the flares from sunspot 798 have had little effect on Earth. The 'spot is near the sun's eastern limb, so the explosions have not been Earth-directed.
