Although lightning is essential to life as it helps to maintain our planet’s electric field, the phenomenon nevertheless remains dangerous. Storms are generated on Earth every day, featuring between six and eight million lightning strikes that can surpass an intensity of 200,000 amps.
The Earth does not go one day without a storm.
Contrary to popular belief, storms are not limited to the summer.
