Just read a story in Reuter titled, "Power companies prepare as solar storms set to hit Earth". I thought it was interesting because usually news like this seems to get pushed aside. I would link it but I am sligthly computer techno illiterate. Very interesting.

some data on the previous pole flips
There have been three solar explosions from the sun already this week, but the first one passed the earth with little impact. However, the second one, Kunches said, "seems to be stronger." If that trend continues when the third one passes earth, it could be more disruptive to the Earth's magnetic field.
"We're coming up to the next solar maximum, so we expect to see more of these storms coming from the sun over the next three to five years," Tom Bogdan, director of the center, said.
