Major X 3.1 Solar Flare and Strong R3 Radio blackout

There’s not much info about it yet but I think it’s earth facing. Don’t know yet if there was a CME. Also “Giant sunspot AR2192 has a ‘beta-gamma-delta’ magnetic field that harbors energy for strong explosions. NOAA forecasters estimate an 85% chance of M-class flares and a 45% chance of X-flares on Oct. 24th. If an explosion does occur, it will be geoeffective because the sunspot is directly facing Earth.” …. Three links below.
