Lightning kills nearly 3,000 people in India every year. We want to change that.
Did you know that lightning is a key indicator of severe weather and present in most storms? The Earth Networks Total Lightning Network monitors the skies 24/7, 365 days a year for both in-cloud and cloud-to-ground lightning strikes (aka "total lightning"). When our global network of lightning sensors detect lightning, it automatically issues severe weather alerts to impacted areas - up to 50% faster than other sources. This technology saves lives every day and reviewing the historical data helps us plan for the next severe weather event.
To help you plan ahead for severe weather, we've compiled all the India lightning data (January 1 to December 31, 2019) into a 16-page report, which you can flip through below.
