Lightning Page:  https://lightning.nifc.gov/
The above listed webpage is obsolete.  Due to a system failure this website has been retired and is no longer availble.  Please use https://lightningapi.nifc.gov/viewer/ to access lightning data.

This website is still under construction and does not yet have all of the features that existed in the old site.  This is an ongoing project and we expect to have many of the same features that existed in the old site.

Some items of interest:

This site no longer requires a WFMI login for basic functions.  The advances functions are not yet availble.

For display purposes you will need to zoom into a location to see the vaious point of lightning strike data.  As you scroll over a number box you will see a bounding polygon that represents the area where the number of lightning strikes exist for number listed in the box.  As you zoom into you will see other boxes that contain further breakdown polygons to see the various lightning stikes.
