Some clouds get positive charge, while some get negative charge. When clouds with both types of charges collide with each other in the sky, electricity of millions of volts is generated. Sometimes the electricity generated in this way is so much that it reaches the earth. This phenomenon is called lightning strike. Every year around 24,000 people die due to lightning around the world. Lightning strikes 40 times in every second, that is, about 3 million times a day. When lightning strikes the ground, its strength is 100 million volts. How gruesome it is, it can be understood from the fact that the power of electricity supplied in our house is 220 volts.
