This is what an everlasting lightning storm looks like


Venezuela’s Catatumbo lightening phenomenon
has entered into the Guinness Book of World Records for the highest number of average
lightning bolts per square kilometre per year, at 250. The phenomenon, in the River Cataumbo, is
strongest during the rainy season. It originates from a mass of storm clouds
over 5 km high, which are likely the result of winds from the lake meeting surrounding
mountain ranges, and collecting heat and moisture, creating electrical charges. Venezuelan environmentalist, Erick Quiroga,
has been monitoring the lightning for 13 years and proposed the phenomenon be entered into
the book last year. The thing about the lightning is that it isn’t
based on reason for me but rather a deep love that I have for the region. For that region
because it was there, in between Lake Maracaibo palm trees where I lived out my childhood
and it was something very beautiful. The idea behind the World Record certification
is to bring tourism back to the people of the communities. The idea that I also propose
with this record is to get the government’s attention.
