Is it a myth or a fact that lightning never strikes twice in the same place?

Lightning can strike anywhere and it is certain that over geological time ALL places on Earth have been struck more than once. In cases where something on the surface may build up an electrical charge at a point (eg a lightening rod) then the lightning will certainly strike it much more frequently. Also if one films a SINGLE lightning strike at high speed, it is clear that what we see as a single strike is in fact many strikes, one after the other using the same ionised discharge path between the sky and earth. So a single lightning bolt actually strikes the same place more than once.

What is lightings speed?

The speed at which lightning strikes is the speed at which electrical energy travels. That is the speed of light. So one can say that the lightning's speed is 3*10^8 meters/second. Lightning is usually a mess of electrons traveling. They usually travel much less than the speed of light. The light travels at 3(10^10) cm/s, but the charges themselves travel more slowly.
