Worldwide, there are about 40 to 50 lightning strikes every second, or nearly 1.4 billion strikes per year.

Lightning often strikes the same place repeatedly. The Empire State Building is hit an average of 23 times each year.

Lightning can cause dangerously high potential differences up to 2 km away from its impact point.

Lightning costs more than $1 billion in insured losses each year!

Lightning is ultrahot! A strike can heat the air around it to temperatures five times hotter than the sun's surface.
