Default Lightning Strikes

Found this site a few weeks ago. Cool stuff. Turn sound on and can here clicks for every strike that gets mapped in that zoom. We had a storm a week ago, I would see the flash from a close strike and it would show up on the map a few seconds later.

Make sure you have detectors and sound turned on... they are on the left hand side.

My strikes did show up. More of a delay than posted on site.

Still really neat.

This site provides the data to the site I linked. It's (lighthingmaps.org) is just a google map based site with zoom in/out ... same data.
