Lightning Strikes

This striking photo was captured looking south over Davis Bay as an estimated 2,000 lightning strikes flashed across the Sunshine Coast, southern Vancouver Island, and parts of the Lower Mainland on Sunday into the early hours of Monday morning. According to Environment Canada, the country averages over two million lightning strikes annually. Despite our relatively short lightning season, almost 10 people are killed and between 100 and 150 people are injured each year by lightning in Canada. This compares to an average of 57 deaths per year in the United States. See more photos on page 11. Ian Bolden photo
