Posted by admin 31 Mar 2016 Comments Off on Most Flashes of Lightning

The World Record of ‘Most flashes of lightning’ has been achieved by Venezuela.

There is a spectacular place in Venezuela where the Catatumbo River empties into Lake Maracaibo.It is at this precise place of the joining of these two water bodies, that an everlasting lightning storm has been taking place nearly every day. These powerful lightning storms can produce up to 20,000 flashes of lightning each night. Lightning storm lasts for about 10 hours each day with approximately 280 bolts per hour. This phenomenon occurs due to the landscape of the area; viz. the lake, the swampy plains surrounding the lake and the Andes Mountain ridge.
