A second flare event a 1338 utc has occurred a few minutes ago, the
magnitude is unknown as yet.

Comment added at 08:32 UTC on March 2: A major flare, an impulsive X1.1 event, peaked at 08:28 UTC. The source of the flare was region 8882. Further major flares are possible, both from region 8882 and 8891. Comment added at 09:22 UTC: Region 8886 has been developing quickly and produced an impulsive M1.0/1F flare at 08:43 UTC, this event may have been triggered by the X1.1/2B flare in region 8882 some minutes earlier. Comment added at 13:54 UTC: Region 8882 produced another major flare at 13:43 UTC, an impulsive M6.5 event. The X1.1 flare earlier today was accompanied by a very fast coronal mass ejection and a moderately strong type II sweep. Proton fluxes increased slightly above background values. Further major flares from region 8882 could start proton events at Earth.

This sounds promising.
