Solar Storm Could Strike Earth This Week

A solar storm — a disturbance in Earth’s magnetic field caused by changes in solar wind — is forecast to hit Earth this week, the Space Weather Prediction Center has warned. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a G1 (minor) geomagnetic storm watch for Tuesday and Wednesday. The storm watch was issued "due to the arrival of a negative polarity coronal hole high speed stream. But, don't worry. This particular storm is categorized as minor and there is no reason to worry.
Effects:
The storm could increase the brightness and visibility of auroras, also known as the Southern or Northern Lights
Regions may notice weak power grid fluctuations, though that’s unlikely to happen in this “minor” storm.
Minor damage to Earth-orbiting satellites,”especially those in high, geosynchronous orbits” could occur, NASA say

yeah, don't think anyone needs a bunker just yet. But Americans love the idea, in theory, of having to bunker it. Cold War nostalgia and too much TV.

Definitely - we should be more worried about the solar storm destroying the whole grid.
