    lightning fatalities more frequent today than as they were in the 1950s.


    The frequency of lightning has significantly increased after the 1950s. This is because of global warming or the global rise in the temperature. As the temperature is increasing the chances for the formation of a thunderstorm is also increasing. That's why the more the thunderstorm, the more will be the lightening and the more will be the death fatalities.

    According to the date, there is a 50% increase in the lightening in the last 30 years.
