Hi all, thought I would start a new thread for these as the team are uploading some great videos for you to watch, so I'll update in here whenever a new one is available. We have three additions this morning, with some spectacular lightning included in those:

Just had a view of the East of Childress lightning show vid. I'm speechless.

You guys (and gal) over there know where to look. Has Channel 4 or Discovery been in touch yet? And if not, why not!!

Keep it going Paul and co. But please remember to stay safe. :winky:

The lightning frequency is pretty amazing! Reminds me of the 6th August storms here last year, with the best lightning I've ever seen in the UK :)

The place where lightning occurs most often is near the small village of Kifuka in the mountains of eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the elevation is around 975 metres (3,200 ft). On average this region receives 158 lightning strikes per square kilometre (approx. 0.4 square mile) a year.Singapore has one of the highest rates of lightning activity in the world.The city of Teresina in northern Brazil has the third-highest rate of occurrences of lightning strikes in the world. The surrounding region is referred to as the Chapada do Corisco ("Flash Lightning Flatlands"). In the US, Central Florida sees more lightning than any other area. For example, in what is called "Lightning Alley", an area from Tampa, to Orlando, there are as many as 50 strikes per square mile (about 20 per km²) per year. The Empire State Building is struck by lightning on average 23 times each year, and was once struck 8 times in 24 minutes.

:D I'd love to witness a storm where lightning strikes every second!

Fantastic lightning video there, team 1 certainly have been treated some of the best of what the Plains storms can display so far. I'm sure those US storm chase virgins on the tour will be disappointed by our storms when they get back! I know Pat (dogs32) will be speechless.

    Dubai Floods: Another Warning Sign for Desert Regions?

    The flooding in the Middle East desert city of Dubai earlier in the week followed record-breaking rainfall. It doesn't rain very often here like other desert areas, but like the deadly floods in Libya last year showed, these rain events are likely becoming more extreme due to global warming.
