Using SOHO/MDI and SOHO/EIT data we study properties and dynamics of interconnected active regions, and the relations between the photospheric magnetic fields and coronal structures in active longitudes during the beginning of solar cycle 23. The emergence of new magnetic flux results in appearance of new interconnecting loops. The existence of stable coronal structures strongly depends on the photospheric magnetic fluxes and their variations. We present some initial results for a complex of solar activity observed in April 1997, and discuss the role of reconnection in the formation of the interconnected loops and coronal holes.
