Going by your theory we should have experienced a series of megaquakes resulting from this intense flare. The largest earthquake for the month of november 2003 was 7.8 at Rat Islands, Aleutian Islands, Alaska on the 17th nov... Nothing realy out of the ordinary there, and proof enough for me that this idea of a link between solar activity and earthquakes is nonsense.
On 4 November 2003, the largest solar flare ever recorded exploded from the Sun's surface, sending an intense burst of radiation streaming towards the Earth. Before the storm peaked, x-rays overloaded the detectors on the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES), forcing scientists to estimate the flare's size. Researchers from the University of Otago used radio wave-based measurements of the x-rays' effects on the Earth's upper atmosphere to revise the flare's size from a merely huge X28 to a "whopping" X45
