These kinds of solar conditions are not rare at all. As the Sun ramps up toward Solar Max, this happens all the time. The question becomes...do
these solar eruptions affect our tectonic plates? With the well-known disruptions and weakening of Earth's magnetic field that have been reported
over the last 15-20 years, does this work into the equation? In this case, it may not be the solar eruptions that are responsible, but the weakening
of the Earth's equilibrium make it a totally different situation. It may be like Earth's "immune system" is in a downgraded state, so we are more
vulnerable to such effects. I think we may be looking at a multi-factoral situation, a combination of events that work together, so that there is no
true main cause, but a group of causes when put together describe what's going on.
