Good day, does the solar wind push on the earth's atmosphere to increase the air pressure on the sunny side?

Could a solar storm eject a coronal mass pushing right down to the earth's ground, possibly causing destruction?

When the sun produces a mass ejection although a considerable mass may be ejected it is as a diffuse cloud very little of which is intercepted by the Earth, its effects are not caused by the mass of material but by the electrical charge that it carries.
