Below is the lightning from storms associated with Hurricane Irma over a period of more than 80 hours beginning at noon on September 4, 2017, to 9:30 pm (eastern) on September 9. NOAA noted that hurricanes don’t often exhibit a great deal of lightning, particularly around the eye, due their winds. Irma of course is an exception.
