Fasten your seat belts, the radiation is on its way. 1 hr to go.
The largest solar radiation outburst in six years is on its way to Earth and will hit our planet with high-energy atomic particles at around 2 pm GMT. [link to wwp.greenwichmeantime.com]

The major impact will occur in the North Pole area: routes of some near North Pole flights have been changed.
The functioning of the ISS will not be affected. Taking into consideration the prognosis for the solar storm, the ISS crew will not even have to take additional radiation security measures.
Massive ejections of plasma, or coronal mass, from the Sun have often resulted in communication and other satellites, as well as ground communications facilities failing. They can cause magnetic storms but bring no evident harm to the health of the planet’s population.
The first solar storm this year was registered on January 19 by NASA’s extra-magnetospheric satellites at the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory SOHO, Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory STEREO, and Advanced Composition Explorer ACE. Occurring after two storm-free months, that storm was ranked a relatively weak grade 5.

TheRe is a possibility it can fry electricity grids and knock planes out of the air.
They say it will be a "Glancing blow" and it will hit mostly above earth.
There is nothing you can do.

it will not knock planes out of the sky - they are already diverted from the North Pole and will affect only those there. don't scare the mate :))

But probably won't. It's not a direct hit. They're saying this one could affect communications in the north pole.
