earth-current storm

(Rarely, electrical storm.) Irregular fluctuations in an earth current, often associated with electric field strengths as large as several volts per kilometer, in the earth's crust, superimposed on the normal diurnal variation of the earth currents.

Such storms are closely related to magnetic storms.
