This summer's lightning strikes at Bitgaram City

Bolt of lightning strikes the south of Naju Bitgaram City

This summer is proving to be particularly lightning-prone around this area. About two weeks ago (July 14), a lightning strike set fire to an empty house near my home. This afternoon, between around 17:10 and 17:25, lightning was striking left and right every few seconds. The two photos you see here were taken at 17:18. As a result, the internet connection at my apartment complex was down for about an hour and a half (and subsequently this website was not accessible at the time), and a small village near the city experienced a power outage.

And another strike next to it, a few seconds apart

Just as the lightning started to subside, we were met with heavy downpour for about 15 minutes. The rain eventually subsided about half an hour later, but not before filling the then-empty company pond and creating pockets of water on the road around the city. What a strange weather to be had for the last day of July.
