Abstract: We present a short overview of the event associated with the recent strong solar flare on 10 September 2017 (X8.2) based on the available data both from satellite GOES-13 and from selected neutron monitors. The onset time of SPE/GLE at 1 AU was found between 16:06—16:08 UT. The GLE effect was anisotropic with a maximum increase of 6%. The maximum energy of accelerated protons was ≈ 6 GeV. We estimated the release time of sub-relativistic protons into open field lines as 15:53—15:55 UT.

In the paper there is an error in the dates of the two GLEs listed in the last line of page 334: instead of wording
"11 February 1992, 11 April 2001"
the correct wording is
"2 November 1992, 4 November 2001"
