It has happened before on ever bigger scale than this, especially during solar Maximums (usually every 11yrs)
This is big though, especially considering we are not in a solar Maximum just now.
As space cadets thread mentions, we are at a greater risk these days of satellite disruptions or Radio Disruptions.
On the whole, the magnetosphere is designed to take this solar wind, so mostly i'm guessing we shall just see some spectacular Northern/southern
Lights. (possibly a bit further afield than normal!)
I'm no expert though, only going by what I read about previous instances of this happening.
