According to a Space Weather Live report, the flare was the second largest of the current 11-year solar cycle next to the recent Sept. 9 X9.3 which derived from the same region on the Sun’s surface.

Specae Weather Live confirms that Sunday’s flare was “highly eruptive.”

Solar data provided by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, Colorado indicates a massive flux of the Sun’s X-Rays occurred sometime after noon on Sept. 10 which backs up other reports.
