Major newspapers and broadcast networks have not emphasized the story.
If will be interesting to see if the president discusses hardening of infrastructure tonight in the State of the Union speech, or if the GOP candidates (besides doomsday-obsessed New Gingrich) predict it. It would be ironic of a solar flare cause power outages that disrupted primaries, debates, or major speeches.
Later: Starting about 11 PM last night, Comcast cable dropped very briefly a few times, and the Internet reset itself those times. Then, this morning (around 10 AM), the XFinity digital phone was out even though Internet and cable were working. The problem started when the phone rang and no one was on the other end. In about five minutes, I was able to fix the problem by simply dialing the number from my cell phone and making it ring once (and playing through three unread messages from politicians). I suspect this could all be solar-flare related. I am in the DC area, at just moderate latitude (39 degrees).
