Displays of the aurora borealis have been reported ; there was dislocation over longdistance radio channels and, in the case of the second storm, with submarine-cable telegraphy. The Astronomer Royal has given the following provisional data: ranges in the three elements (D, H and V) of the earth's magnetic field as recorded at the Abinger magnetic observatory during the three 24-hour intervals commencing March 23 at llh.
