This App provides a live lightning strike map. Also send notifications of local strikes.

Lighting is the most fascinating aspect of the weather. Nothing can beat watching a storm or hearing a loud crack of thunder, waiting for it to come closer.

There are 16 million lightning storms each year. The discharge of atmospheric electricity can reach temperatures approaching 30,000 degrees C and travels at 140,000 mph. No wonder they are fascinating to watch!

Map locations supported US / Europe / Oceania / Japan. However data coverage mainly in Europe and US.
