In terms of damage (if any) - What can a Hyder Flare cause?

SOLAR FILAMENT: The sun may be spotless today, but it certainly is not blank. A long dark magnetic filament is looping around the northeastern limb, stretching almost 100,000 km from end to end:

Long, bushy filaments like this have been known to grow unstable and erupt, producing a type of spotless flare called a "Hyder flare." If that happens now, Earth would likely feel some effects from the blast because the filament is turning to face our planet. Readers with solar telescopes are encouraged to monitor developments.

Hyde flares may, sometimes, be associated with high energy particle emission, this particles could be harm for orbiting satellites and damage them. This is a problem for companies with satellites.

So in other words, they just act like your typical CME?? Take out a few satellites etc?

we will see in a few days, keep in mind from our own perspective of observation we can hardly detect CMEs directly pointed at Earth as clearly as those which go sideways.

Well there is nothing on Spaceweather or any other news website, which I was expecting as they were discussing the filament only a few days ago. Maybe it wasn't the filament & just a normal CME?
