How prone are storms in New Smyrna Beach and Titusville?
The lightning capital of the US
Did you know, Florida has 17 out of the top 30 cities for lightning, making it live up to its reputation as the lightning capital of the U.S. The Sunshine State is also the Lightning State.
Florida is the lightning capital of the U.S. because Florida has a distinct sea breeze during the summer. From late-spring through late-summer, the sea breeze creates numerous thunderstorms per day. It has a tropical climate. Due to the moisture and heat that Florida experiences, the atmosphere is generally less stable, making thunderstorms more common there than in the rest of the U.S.
Now you may ask yourself how can lighting affect you? Well, first off you don't want to be struck by lightning because its deadly. But most people aren't thinking that lighting can strike your home or place of work and start a fire. Many fires that are required to be put out by the fire department also then suffer from water damage! It happens more than one would think especially as we live in the lightning capital! Sometimes these strikes can affect multiple units and even cause great damage to multiple properties in a single storm! Thats just lighting not even mentioning the massive storms, front and hurricanes we face!
