  1. Intense echoes to my west..have had info from friends there they have a covering of hail.
  2. Was outside just 5 minutes ago...loud thunder from a strike over my home village of Coedpoeth (3 miles west of me)
  3. Yep saw the flashes to my NNW...unexpected thunder again...nowt like it.
  4. Hurricane Irma

    Am I seeing lightning flashes? No point listening for thunder if so......
  5. Hurricane Irma

    Watching that made me feel sick.
  6. Torrential shower just passed here, huge puddles left in its wake...not electrified though.
  7. Well done getting another storm.
  8. Summer 2017 Discussion

    Trees definitely on the turn here. Some of them have a distinctly autumnal look. So August has been a shocker. Who'd a thought it? Definitely becoming par for the course as I am struggling to recall the last time we had a really good one.
  9. Like what we had here last week. +CG's with an explosion followed by a rumble that went on for 30+ seconds. Still over 90 strikes per minute with a few now appearing in Cumbria.
  10. Along with the sferic activity, large rainfall rates ongoing across Northern Ireland...
  11. Clip from Wrexham...best strike at 1:18
  12. The first bang you hear in this clip is fairly typical of what I was hearing last night..
  13. Well...well. Talk about unexpected. Many, many reports around my local area (several miles apart) of the thunder "shook my house".."sounded like a plane had crashed".."like a bomb had gone off"...being unusually loud. When I heard the first boom, I assumed the strike had been within a mile of my location. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it was over 5 miles away! This occurred a few more times..relatively distant strikes (4-6 miles away) but explosive booming thunder. Positive strikes?
