BLOG BY : Gunther

 

The lightning capital of the world is Rwanda in Africa.
Lightning is a beautiful part of nature, and can be scary for some people.

 

But in Florida, it is a serious danger.
In Florida, going to the beach is a fun and relaxing activity.
But the storms come fast and strong.
In the summer it rains everyday around 12 or 1pm.

 

The storms, sometimes called "squalls" are very powerful but only last 1 or 2 hours.
With very heavy rain and dangerous lightning and sometimes wind.

 

 

In this video from about :40, you can see how dangerous it is to be outside during a storm.

In 2016, 9 people died in Florida from being struck by lightning!

 

There are over 900,000 bolts of lightning every year in Florida. Its a beautiful natural sight, like the northern lights but you must watch from inside!

 

What natural phenomenons are you scared of? Tell me at school!
