Lets Talk Lightning

Jun 20 in Uncategorized Hits: 3107
1.) Some people think lightning never strikes the same place twice. However, lightning often strikes the same place twice, especially if it's a tall, pointed object. Reportedly, the Empire State Building is struck nearly 25 times a year.

2.) It is also believed that lightning only poses a threat when it is cloudy or raining. The truth is lightning often strikes more than three miles outside of a storm and has been known to travel as far as 10-15- miles before striking the ground.

3.) Many people are confused by the term "heat lightning" and think it occurs as the result of a very hot summer day. The term "heat lightning" is used to describe lightning from a thunderstorm too far away to be heard. (Source: Servpro Restoration Newsline-Volume 22, Issue 5)
