In the 24 hours leading up to 7 a.m., December 7, 2019, MetService recorded 109,000 lightning strikes over New Zealand (mostly over South Island and Westland) and surrounding waters. 300,000 bolts on December 8, 2019 and more than 857,000 in 72 hours.
That’s a new record for New Zealand… And could this strong electric event have something to do with the deadly eruption of White Island on New Zealand’s South Island?
