Lightning Injury Reports by Country and Year
News reports of injuries, deaths, and property damage are collected on a regular basis by our staff in English and in other languages by volunteers and posted to the country where the incidents occurred every month.
When you select a country, maps are available as well as news reports by year. Please let us know if you are aware of reports that we have missed with our searches and we'll be glad to verify and add them. Thank you for your assistance. News reports are invaluable in helping us to study who was hit, what they were doing, age, and other pertinent data that can help ACLENet, our National Centres and the governments of each country to target areas most in need of lightning safety information and education.
