Lightning bolts from sky are one of the most beautiful scenes nature could construct, but it becomes deadly if frequency is over 80,000 strikes a night. That’s what happened to the city of Adelaide, Australia last night. Amidst huge storm that swept across many regions in the city, the lightning bolts triggered fires and power outages in the states of South Australia and Victoria.
This causes a trouble for air flights as all of them were grounded. A house in the suburbs of Prahran was burnt to ashes. Well, that was terrifying indeed.
It’s really difficult to believe that tiny particles in the clouds could produce so much of energy. Did you know that lighting strikes a location of Earth about 40 to 50 times every second?
