Debunking the Myth:  Include at least three facts with supporting details that will debunk, or disprove, your chosen myth.

        The WVAH TV tower in St. Albans was struck by lightning 50 times in a single night. ON June 30th 2014 Chicago’s 3 tallest towers were struck by lightning 17 times.The sears tower was hit ten times, the trump tower was hit four times.

Nasa conducted an experiment where they recorded 386 cloud-to-ground  lightning flashes on videotape during the summer of 1997 in Tucson, Arizona. They found that within their sample of 386 flashes, 136 flashes (35 percent) struck the ground in two or more places that were separated by tens of meters (yards) or more. There were a total of 558 different strike points; therefore, on average, each cloud-to-ground flash struck the ground in 1.45 places. ( Credits go to nasa)
