Coronal holes

We call the cracks in the plasma mantle around the Sun, coronal holes. The existence of these cracks is slightly visible in the high UV spectrum. The coronal holes shown here, which show up as major cracks right across the face of the Sun, have occurred in the same time as the great flooding in Texas has occurred.

As I said, under normal conditions, the Solar Cosmic Rays out-number the Galactic Cosmic Rays typically a thousand-fold. But when the coronal holes open up the ratio is vastly larger, and so is the ionizing effect the resulting cosmic-ray showers have in the atmosphere on the Earth as a consequence. That's when some of the gigantic flash floods occur.
