If you’ve ever worried about getting struck by lightning, this is where it’s most likely to happen.
As it turns out, most lightning strikes happen near the Equator. And in particular, around a certain lake in Venezuela. Residents there experience, on average, 300 nights of lightning per year… at roughly 40,000 lightning strikes per night.
