How dangerous are solar storms really?

In „The Superflare“, an eruption on the sun triggers an EMP, destroying all digitized devices and power grids worldwide – a disaster for the fully digitized world in 2051 and the starting point for the novel’s plot.

But are we also threatened by such a danger? Or would a solar storm end similarly mildly as in 1859 with the so-called Carrington event? What does science have to say about possible dangers of solar storms?

For those interested in these questions, I have compiled below some links to articles that address this issue.
