Three large sunspots emerging on the sun’s eastern limb could produce more significant solar flares in the coming days. Active region 11260 is the most active, producing at least twelve C-class flares the last 24 hours and an M1.1 class flare in the late hours of July 27. This new activity more than doubling the total for the entire month of July so far. New active region 11262, however, could eventually cause more trouble. Magnetograms of the active region reveal a delta-class magnetic field that harbors energy for powerful X-class eruptions.

Sunspot 1260 has developed a delta-class magnetic field that harbors energy for powerful X-class solar flares an eruption would be Earth-directed. Elenin starts its pass by Sun could increase the chance for an X-Class
Impacts will be on satellite communication, and there is also an associated earthquake threat ..

STRONG FLARE: AR11261 unleashed a brief but strong M9-class solar flare on July 30th at 0209 UT. Because of its brevity, the eruption probably did not hurl a substantial CME toward Earth, but this is not yet a firm conclusion
Three big sunspot groups are rotating across the Earth-facing side of the sun. One of them, AR1261, is morphing into a circular ring. The magnetic field of this shape-shifting sunspot is crackling with C- and M-class solar flares, including a powerful M9-blast to begin the day on July 30th. NOAA forecasters estimate a 40% chance of more such flares during the next 24 hours.
Targeting Coronal Hole (CH468) which could produce two significant earthquakes over 6.6 in magnitude.
First region is plotted to 27-34° North Latitude
Possible regions that could be at risk for a significant earthquake are:
Bonin Islands Japan, Izu Islands Japan, Sichuan China, Western Turkey
Or a possible volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands(La Palma / Hierro)

Second region plotted to 35-38° North Latitude.
Possible locations that could be at risk for a significant earthquake Aug 2-4 are :
Honshu-Japan or Central/Northern California-America
OLR anomaly indicates Papua New Guinea could receive a significant earthquake during this watch period
Two other regions that could recieve a smaller event
(5.5M) are Vancouver Island-Canada or the Sandwich Islands region
