"Intergalactic" Storm

I like the Daily Mail, for the most part, because it covers stories that the national media in the U.S. rarely cover. However, the Mail is subject to fits of hyperbole combined with an utter lack of understanding of basic science that is sometimes humorous.

Such as this headline from a story concerning possible solar storms: "Intergalactic storms on the way as sun does a flip: Magnetic field change could interfere with satellites and cause radio blackouts." "Intergalactic"? Really? Watch out all you denizens of Andromeda!
