Lightning strikes about 100 times per second.
100 per second one hundred
In the u.s. lightning strikes about 40 million times in one year.
Its occurrence varies from one region to the next, but on the whole lightning is very common. Worldwide it is estimated that there are about 100 lighting strikes every second.
Although many lightning flashes are simply cloud-to-cloud, there are as many as 9,000,000 reported lightning strikes that damage buildings, trees, and other objects every year.Worldwide, it is estimated that of an annual 1.4 billion lightning bolts, 25% (more than 350 million) will strike the Earth's surface or objects on the surface. The vast majority of these strikes, however, occur in the tropics, and in unpopulated areas.100 times per second;Lightning can strike over a thousand times in one storm. So, lightning strikes the earth over a million times a day.Globally, 8,640,000 lightning strikes per day. See the related link for more information.
Lightning can be considered more dangerous that a tornado because there is no warning. A lightning bold strikes and is gone in a fraction of a second. By contrast it usually takes at least a few minutes for a tornado to form and it is often possible to see or detect one before it strikes.
at any one time there are almost 30 lightning strikes in the world
It's called in-cloud or cloud-to-cloud lightning.
Lightning can strikes back at one place but it's just a very very small percentage about 0.00001 percent but it can happen it's not impossible.
There is a section of central Florida known as the Lightning Belt because it has such a high incidence of lightning strikes. This is one of the most active areas, if not the most active, in the US.
the sound of lightning strikes from the sky.
Approximately 2.5 miles. Every 4 second delay is the equivalent of one mile.
Most lightning events are intracloud (IC) or cloud to cloud (CC), occurring high in the atmosphere.
Strikes has one syllable.
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.
A thunder storm is one in which a large amount of thunder is heard. Thunder is caused by lightning; it would be more correct to say that a thunderstorm only occurs with lightning strikes.
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.
The Antarctic. The vast cold temperatures do not provide the heat necessary to host thunderstorms. They do get some lightning, but it is probably one to two strikes a year on average.
There are no clear statistics. One estimate is that 24,000 people are killed by lightning strikes around the world each year and about 240,000 are injured. Another estimate is that the annual global death toll is 6,000.
A favourable outcome is one in which the event that you are looking for happens. The word favourable can have contrary connotations. If studying fatal lightning strikes, a "favourable" outcome is one in which someone dies from being struck by lightning. I don't know many people who would consider that "favourable"!

Alexander Popov was one of the first to create a radar device. His device, created in 1895, was meant for detecting lightning strikes.
6 strikes (for 6 o'clock) are 5 intervals (the strike itself can be assumed to be almost instantaneous); so after the first strike, you have one strike per second. That makes 11 strikes for 12 o'clock.6 strikes (for 6 o'clock) are 5 intervals (the strike itself can be assumed to be almost instantaneous); so after the first strike, you have one strike per second.

The minute the clock strikes one second after midnight on the day which of your 18th birthday.
A lightning strike is about 1,100 feet away if you hear the thunder one second after the lightning flash. The distance varies somewhat with temperature, air pressure, and other environmental conditions.
Three strikes equal one out in a regular softball game.
