Lightning strikes in Florida oceans

Florida’s Craziest Lightning Photos

Florida holds the titles of “The Sunshine State” and “The Lightning Capital of The World”. Yeah, think about that one. On average, every year around 75 people are killed by lightning in the United States, 9 of those being in Florida. With hundreds of thousands of lightning strikes recorded annually in the area between Titusville and Orlando, this span of Florida has become known as “Lightning Alley”. Florida even is home to a professional hockey team named after the electrifying weather phenomenon.

Check out the photos below to see some of the most amazing and beautiful pictures of lightning in Florida:
