    Live Lightning Map

    For anyone interested, here is a link to a live lightning map. Just scroll down to a town near you in your state and a live map plus all the data of lightning strikes can be viewed.

    What US city has the largest number of recorded strikes annually? (This was actually a question on a NETA test)

    Maybe this will help:

    Severe Thunderstorm Events- NOAA/OAR/National Severe Storms Laboratory

    I think that Vaisala and United States Precision Lightning Network will sell you the data. Electric utilities sometimes subscribe to these services and might share with you if you've got a contact.

    The state of Florida by far has the highest density of strikes per kmĀ² in the US. The area between Tampa and Orlando has the highest percentage of strikes in the state. I believe Teresina Brazil and Central Africa are the true lightning capitals of the world.

    Ding, ding, ding, we have a winner! Tampa, FL. Brazil and South Africa sound right, but I have no idea what the capital of the world is.
