Lightning Strikes in Tucson?

12/20/2021 (Permalink)

Lightning is lighting up the sky at night. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Pima County.

SERVPRO® of Northeast Tucson and SERVPRO® of Oro Valley/Marana East have been restoring storm damage in Tucson for years. Our fast emergency response time is key to saving our customers from more extensive and time-consuming repairs in many cases. Here is some interesting information about some of the varieties of lightning from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA):

Bolt from the Blue

  • Cloud-to-ground lightning that starts inside a cloud goes out the side of the storm, then travels horizontally away from the cloud before going to round. A bolt from the blue can strike the ground at a spot with “blue sky” above it. Even a storm that is six miles away can be dangerous.

Cloud Flashes

  • Many flashes do not reach the ground. Most of these remain within the cloud and are called intra-cloud (IC)lightning flashes. Cloud flashes sometimes have visible channels that extend out into the air around the storm (cloud-to-air or CA) but do not strike the ground. The term sheet lightning describes an IC flash embedded within a cloud that lights up as a sheet of luminosity during the flash.
