There are over 1.4 billion lightning flashes worldwide
every year; 8,640,000 strikes a day; and 100 strikes
per second.
Lightning bolts are about the size of a Quarter to Half-Dollar.
The temperature of a typical lightning bolt can reach 50,000+ F degrees - that is 5 times greater than the temperature of the surface of the Sun.
The state of Florida holds the title of the “Deadliest State.” There are twice as many lightning casualties as in any other state. 10% of all people struck by lightning were in Florida at the time.
Most lightning strikes average 2 to 6 miles long and carry a current of 100000 Amps at 100 million Volts
Lightning is the #1 cause of storm-related deaths
Damage costs from lightning are estimated at 4-5 billion each year in the U.S.
