    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 kmē 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.
