I believe that the glancing blow we just experienced is the mild storm to which SpaceWeather is referring.
As the Fox video stated, the potential is there in the next 5 days that this sunspot could launch a more massive CME at Earth, so it's just a heads-up to be prepared.

spaceweather is quite a good site , can see it getting used more .
just what is the 'mass chaos' the cme brings , other than power failures ? i read in a broadsheet msm production (guardian newsaper) about very strong cmes , (rating goes up to x19) where you would need to unhook your car battery to be on the safe side during it , be inside ,etc . the one of the 22 nd was rated an x class (strongest type) x1.4 (small in comparison to x16 for example) .
what are the chances of a really strong one , and what would it do . thats the intersting bit not getting foxed for money
