Lightning Does Strike

The Weather Channel reports that there are an average of 810,444 lightning strikes per year with an average of 15.2 per square mile.  Each year, on average, 49 people lose their lives due to lightning strikes in The United States.  And for an odd fact, men are more likely to be struck by lightning than women.

We are now moving into the major lightning season.  See this good article from The National Weather Service with links to other articles.
