THUN­DER­STORM FACTS

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FRONT PAGE -

Thun­der­storms are most likely to hap­pen in the spring and sum­mer sea­son, dur­ing af­ter­noon and evening hours. Eigh­teen thou­sand thun­der­storms oc­cur all over the earth, each day. Light­ning pro­duced by thun­der­storms kills more peo­ple than tor­na­does. Dur­ing a thun­der­storm, we see light­ning be­fore we can hear it be­cause the light trav­els faster than sound. The tin­gle on your skin or on your hair strand’s end can tell you that the light­ning is about to strike.
