Thunderstorms and Lightning

Parent Category: Meteorology and Weather
Also referred to as a lightning storm, a thunderstorm is a weather form wherein thunder and lightning are present. Thunderstorms, most especially if accompanied by heavy rains and downburst winds, pose hazards to people and the environment.
Definitely not under a tree, lamppost, or power lines. If you are  stuck outdoors, a car is one of the safest places to be. Because of  the rubber tires, you can't be struck as long as you are inside it.  Indoors, stay away from the windows in case a tree is struck and  falls onto your house.
The water is a better ground than land, so it finds the water near the islands
You have to get special access to the scripts from the creators/company. They do not just put movie scripts out into the public for multiple reasons. Your best bet but highly unlikely way is to contact the company that made the film. You need to state WHY you would like the script and HOW you will...
Since lightning is an electrical current, normally in a  thunderstorm, little pieces of ice way up in the cloud collide  together fast and hard, making an electrical charge, which then  eventually makes an electrical current that is known as lightning.
Since light travels faster than sound, you can tell how many miles away a thunder storm is by counting. Lightning strikes. 5 seconds pass and you heard thunder. The thunder storm is 5 miles away.
St Martin in the Bull Ring, Birmingham is a parish church of the  Church of England. By 1808, the church spire had been struck by  lightning three times.
There should be midnight screenings in the U.S., but the first screening will take place in Greece.
No. The odds of being struck by lightning are slim as it is, but to be struck twice? Not common but it has happened...
Probably not . Most fluids are not very compressible at all. I doubt there are any fluids, flammable or not, that are much more compressible than water. Maybe 50% more compressible (at best a factor of 2), but I very much doubt there are fluids that are 3-4 times as compressible as water. Gases on...
A cold front would likely be a front that would produce hail and tornadoes in an area because cold fronts are different than warm fronts. Cold fronts are usually fronts that cause storms and if they have the right recipe it could produce damaging winds, hail and sometimes if it's very strong,...
Chiron was actually Percy Jackson's Latin teacher when Percy was at Yancy Academy, a boarding school in New York. Chiron was in disguise as Percy's favorite teacher, Mr. Brunner.
Cumulonimbus clouds form hail I think
1 in 30 people believe that this is due to the fact that North Korea actually has an international monopoly over the marijuana market. However, in order to effectively answer this question we would have to actually ask Kim Jung Il himself. We also believe that the recent death of Michael Jackson...
Bcoz the car acts as a faraday cage , and some say the rubber tyres of the car insulate the lightening but i dont think so , i say ill go with the faraday cage read it on wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faraday_cag…
On the onw website I fond and after a little research I have found that the worlds largest hailstone was found in Aurora, Nebraska and it measured over 10 inches in width but that was only about half of it because some of it broke off when it hit the ground and some melted before it could be...
People study lightening because it causes a lot of damage when it  touches the ground or hits a person. Lightening is continually  studied because there is not much know about where it will strike  and why.
Answer . Take it to a shop or mechanically inclined friend.
Lightning and thunder comes from the cumulonimbus cloud and hits the earth.
Quite frequently, especially cloud to cloud lightning. This was rarely a problem with metal planes, but with modern composites which don't conduct electricity well, severe damage has been known to occur.
a thunderstorm is just short a typhoon rains and it becames flood
When air of different temperature collides, the result is usually rainfall and sometimes a storm.. A warm front is created when warm air meets cold air, and the warm air starts to rise over the cold air. As warm air rises, it begins to cool, and condensation occurs, resulting in rain clouds.. When...
  == Answer ==   If the ball had any contact whatsoever on or within the baseline, it is fair. Otherwise, it's a foul and counted as a strike, but a foul cannot strike you out.
A thunderstorm is a weather-related phenomenon. It is stated that a thunderstorm is defined by having the following characteristics: Cumulonimbus Clouds Precipitation (rain/hail)Lightning/Thunder
nope, currently sports chines made radar
No. Lighting produces a flash. Thunder is the sound the lightning  produces.
its impossible to know exactly where lightning will strike
Harry Potter. Sorry, but it's true.
the answer is both positive and negitive charges and that is because to make lighting it has to be positive and negitive charges because if there is both 2 negitive charges will both repel and the same thing will happen to positive charges but when positive and negitive charges and positive charges...

It is a fairly new series and cannot be read online yet.
Yes... the plural form of storm is... storms.
Please improve your question and resubmitt it when the grammar is correct.
Yes. OSHA lists electrocution as one of the most common causes of  fatal workplace accidents.
No. Some thunderstorms produce relatively little wind.
mostly in the spring time It depends on the country. In many parts of Australia, thunderstorms can occur any time of year, but are less likely to happen in Winter, and are far more common during Summer.
no not at all but ares is the lightning theif
on a golf course hill with metal club in hand and holding a metalumbrella
Yes. Lightning is an eletrical discharge like being shocked by static. Lightning can be just about 40x hotter than the sun. it's when negative electrons and positive protons are charged and attract each other forming lightning.
Because getting struck by lightening itself if highly unlikely, the likelihood that being struck by lightening and the lightening causing death is unlikely. Lightening can cause death however, but since getting struck by lightening is unlikely, yah.
Thunderstorms in themselves cannot destroy, yet a tornado or lightening in a thunderstorm can cause damage.
Lightning literally is static electricity, just like when your  shock someone after walking in sock on carpet. It's the same  transfer of energy due to the clouds and the earth becoming  electrically unbalanced.
Yes because they are both the same electron until its starts lightning they both become negative and attract! Opposites attract smarty.. they are different groups of protons and electrons. Earth being positive repels the positive charges in the cloud which makes the lower part of the cloud...
The correct answer is a question...Has it even thundered and lightning during a snow storm?Well yes is does often; a thunder snow.
No, but I suggest you do because if you see the movie then read the book, you'll get mad at the book for mistakes, when it's really the movie's fault. EX: Annabeth is blond in the book, brunette in the movie; Chiron is a white stallion in the books and a brown horse in the movie; Percy discovers his...
Florida state has the highest rate of death by lighting. From 1959 to 2003 lightning killed 3,696 people in the United States. Of those, 425 were in Florida.
darkness, confusion, fear and to an extent- power
If lightning kills you - and it kills only 10% it hits - it will very likely kill you within a second, generally by stopping your heart.
  mostly the ones that don   t have the sense to come inside during a storm
Snow storms can be found any where. The temperature and precipitation just has to be low enough. 40 degrees and under are potential snow storm weather
Annabeth's cap allows the wearer to become invisible.
Because metal is a great conductor
Yes it can if you are touching the TV or very close to it when the lightening strikes. This is also true of anything plugged into the electrical source or connected to a water source. The lightening travels along the wires or pipes to the appliance or water outlet (faucet, toilet, etc.).
i think by sending satellite on space to look at every single thing on the universe
Currently the mechanics of how volcanic eruptions produce lightning are not well understood. Part of it may have to do with ash particles exchanging charges particles in a similar mechanism to what causes lightning in thunderstorms.
probably if that piece of metal can conduct electricity and is being struck by lightning whilst you are touching it so it's best not to do that or.......OUCH!!!!!!!!X X
Wildfires may be started by lightning or by careless humans. They can become disasters when they rapidly move into developed areas, and firestorms can spread embers for several miles, overcoming firefighting efforts. Wildfires naturally consume grass and brush, but can also involve trees, which may...
When lightning first strikes it is hotter than the sun, however it happens so fast that if someone does get struck, they dont automatically die. So long answer short, yes, lightning is hotter than fire.
The sound comes from the collision of two clouds in the sky, which also produces lightening.
It was invented by Benjamin Franklin. He created the first one and connected it to some bells in his home to show that it worked. He never patented it, though, so that various people could make rods and sell then inexpensively in hopes of saving people's lives.

You should try to phrase your question properly so that someone can understand it.In the unlikely case that your question is: Is Percy Jackson and the Olympians The Lightning thief a whole book?, than the answer is obviously yes.If your question is: Have you read the whole book, than my answer is ...
Let's take an example: gravitational potential energy. An object has more potential energy if it is raised to a higher position. The energy comes from whatever raised it up, although it is also possible (as in the case of meteorites) that the object was never on the ground in the first place.\n ...
Where there is water. The wator from a body of water is evaprating 24/7 making more clouds.
Despite what the person before me stated, one is actually unlikely to be killed by a lightning strike. Only about 1/5 people struck by lightning die from it. Though it is safe to assume that there will be some sort of injury.The best thing to do after being struck would be to have someone call an...
the counselor told me a million times to count to ten and take a deep breath
No. Thunder itself does not cause damage. Lightning, however, can  start fires.
A thunderstorm WILL be coming. The meteorologists know for sure.
The noun lightning itself (electrical discharge) is used as a noun  adjunct, rather than an adjective, in such terms as lightning bolt  or lightning rod.   Only when the intent is to show great speed or quickness (lightning  speed, lightning reflexes) is lightning an adjective.
lighting can happen in a split second. LITERALLY.
Thunderstorms are common in tropical rainforests, and the intensity of the lightning storms there can be very high.

If your head is underwater, lightning wont strike you. If you poke your head out, it will.
