Lightning Strkes around the World
Interesting map from Wikipedia showing the average number of lightning strikes per square kilometre per year. Ipoh is in the hotspot for lightning events. I had an unfortunate experience last year. One thunderous lightning some distance away and the following equipment destroyed: a desktop computer, the alarm system, one LCD TV and the fridge motor. Fortunately I had an insurance policy to pay for them all. Remember to take photos of your burnt out equipment showing all the roasted circuits when submitting papers for your claims!!
