I would note how she started to bomb as quick as any storm the past
few weeks from birth to hurricane strength while the sun was
starting to become active again.
There have not been to many eruptions the past few weeks worth
mentioning and the strong proton event speaks for itself. I think we
had to go back almost three weeks to find a stronger x-ray flare
than the M6.4/1N that occurred early on the 25th.
Now already formed tropical systems tend not to strengthen much
while the solar winds are rising above the 500 km/sec level but once
the SW's reach their peak it seems like they can... even above 500
km/sec. Emily comes to mind and I recall someone else..??? Irene ???
but I can not be positive right now.
