Hastings Pier Lightning

Thunderbolts & Lightning

MASSIVE storm tonight. There is something rare, called a Mesoscale Convective System heading across the English Channel. Most of the lightning is out at sea and the strikes are fairly obscured by light fog. Some break through. Apparently there are 160 strikes per minute going on. The sky is flickering and there is definitely a lot!

I think some struck near Hastings Castle. The crack and rumble going on for a very long time.

The funny thing is, last week there were contractors on the pier measuring voltage on the deck. I asked them what they were checking. They were checking the conductivity for lightning.
