The Everlasting Lighting Storm of Venezuela
There’s a place on Earth where lighting no longer scares people to death.
That is because it occurs in the exact same place more than 260 nights a year, 10 hours each. You will be relieved to know the “lucky” spot is not some populated metropolis city-dwellers had to desert.
The phenomenon is inexplicably attached to the spot where the Catatumbo River empties into the giant Maracaibo Lake. Local fishers are the only ones able to exploit nature’s wrath – lighting acts as a lighthouse, and occasionally stuns a school of fish leaving them belly up.
Why is the everlasting lighting storm of Venezuela scientifically impossible. Well, we hate to be the ones breaking it to you, but electrical discharges are supposed to be unpredictable, giving their victims new haircuts or ticket for the ER.
Where’s the wise guy that said lightning never strikes twice in the same place?
The next impossible place is equally dangerous as the non-stop lightning of Lake Maracaibo. Check it out!
