Lightning
« on: July 09, 2013, 08:02:32 PM »
Tonight we had a lightning storm the likes of which I have never seen. Daughter - who had lived out here much longer - had not ever seen it.. Half the sky was just lighting up... Pulsing big flashes then streaks going sideways over several miles... It just ended...went on for a couple of hours after rain.
Didn't seem normal to me... Neighbor sat and got photos,  will try to get and post soon.
There was a funnel cloud not far away and some tornado damage in the county... Lightning made the news...

Here are photos taken by some one who lives five minutes from me...wow. Even so...the photos don't capture the terrifying hugeness of the lightning flashes and the way it lit up large areas...

Yowbarb Note: Check out the page, second link below...for statistics on lightning deaths in the US - and tips on lightning safety.

http://www.weather.gov/

Lightning deaths are already double those than at this time last year.

As of July 8, 2015, 17 people have died from lightning strikes in the US. This is double the average number of year-to-date lightning fatalities over the past five years. Summer is the most dangerous season for lightning. It is NEVER safe to be outside during a thunderstorm. When thunder roars, go indoors!

Excerpt from article:

http://www.livescience.com/38313-how-to-survive-a-lightning-strike.html

How to survive a lightning strike

The best way to survive, of course, is to avoid a lightning strike. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends people follow the 30/30 rule: If, after seeing lightning, you can't count to 30 before hearing thunder, get inside a building immediately (because the lightning storm is close). And don't go outside until 30 minutes after the last clap of thunder.

Sheds, dugouts, bus shelters and other structures don't offer real protection and may actually be targets for a lightning strike. Instead, find a substantial building with wiring and plumbing that will direct an electrical charge away from occupants.

It's safer to be in a vehicle than outdoors, provided it's a hardtop vehicle with the windows rolled up and not a convertible, according to FEMA. The metal frame of a vehicle will provide some protection (as long as passengers aren't touching any metal parts).

Remember that rubber tires and rubber-soled shoes provide virtually no protection from lightning. In fact, many victims of lightning strikes are farmers in open fields riding tractors with rubber tires.

If you're caught outdoors in a forest during a lightning storm, seek shelter in a low area under a dense growth of small trees. Avoid tall trees, since lightning tends to strike the tallest object in an area.

If you're in an open area, go to a low area, like a valley or a ravine (but be alert for flash floods). If you're in a boat in open water, get to land as quickly as possible.

And if you feel your hair stand on end, that means lightning is about to strike. As a last resort, immediately squat down on the balls of your feet, cover your ears with your hands (to minimize hearing loss) and put your head between your knees.

Do not lie flat on the ground — it's best to minimize your contact with the ground, since an electrical charge will travel across the ground.

If a person is struck by lightning, render assistance immediately — victims do not carry an electrical charge and cannot shock or hurt anyone.

Lightning by the numbers

A typical lightning flash contains about 300 million volts of electricity, or enough power to light a 100-watt compact fluorescent bulb for a year, according to the National Weather Service.

In the United States, lightning strikes kill about 100 people each year and injure about 1,000, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

FEMA estimates that your chances of being struck by lightning are now about 1 in 600,000. Over the past 100 years, the rate at which people are struck has dropped substantially, as fewer people now work outdoors on farms or ranches.

Florida experiences significantly more lightning strikes, deaths and injuries than any other state; NOAA recorded an average of 1.4 million lightning flashes per year in Florida.

The New England region typically receives relatively few lightning strikes, and California, despite its size, receives just 85,000 lightning strikes in an average year, largely due to its mild coastal weather.

And no other region of the world sees more lightning than central Africa: One small African town — the tiny village of Kifuka in the Democratic Republic of the Congo — is hit by lightning about 158 times each year.

The Earths atmosphere is changing in some very unexpected ways:

Record 199.5 miles lightning bolt measured in Oklahoma and 7.74 seconds in France!!

http://strangesounds.org/2016/09/record-199-mile-lightning-bolt-oklahoma-duration-france-pictures.html

The WMO (World Meteorological Organizatinion) has declared 2 new weather world records.
The longest lightning bolt (199.5miles) in Oklahoma, USA and the longest duration lightning flash (7.74seconds) in France.

The World Meteorological Organization has confirmed a new record-longest lightning bolt, which struck over Oklahoma in 2007. The lightning bolt measured 199.5 miles long as it streaked across the sky. The WMO also announced another record – a lightning bolt that lasted 7.74 seconds over southern France in 2012.

he World Meteorological Organization has named a new king of lightning bolts, nine years after it streaked across the sky over Oklahoma.

According to a new report published Tuesday in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, the lightning bolt spanned 199.5 miles horizontally when it struck June 20, 2007. On Tuesday, the WMO officially recognized it as the longest single flash of lightning ever recorded.

Lightning Strike Shreds Bedroom Wall Inside South Florida Home

By Andrew MacFarlane

weather.com

Story Highlights
A Coral Springs, Florida, home sustained damage after a lightning strike nailed the home.

No one was injured during the incident.

A South Florida home was damaged Sunday morning after a lightning strike nailed the house during a cluster of thunderstorms.

Homeowners told the Coral Springs Fire Department they heard a loud strike near their house around 11:30 a.m. EDT Sunday morning, which was about the same time they lost power.

Fire officials posted pictures of a bedroom in the Coral Springs home, showing a wall of the room shredded by the bolt.

''You can obviously see the intensity and power of a lightning bolt,'' Coral Springs Fire Department spokesman Mike Moser told the Miami Herald.

The damaging strike took place not long after a flood advisory was issued for Broward County midday Sunday.

No one was injured during the incident, according to the Associated Press.
