Uh huh. Solar storms affect the earth's magnetosphere, and electromagnetic fluctuations/pulses can trigger geophysical activity. ...But the world is
a much bigger place than just our solar system - and many paths do lead to the same place. So most things are multifactorial. Including earthquakes
The asteroid in question would have had a minimal effect or "echo" - but such things can "resonate" or create a domino effect.
