You can hardly see New Zealand on the wild lightning map of New Zealand

Over 100,000 lightning bolts were detected in one week during storms in early June in New Zealand. The National Weather Service recorded exactly 111,621 lightning strikes across New Zealand’s islands and surrounding waters between June 6 and 13 – all on the lightning map, with little evidence for the island nation:

Cold fronts from the Southern Ocean and Tasman Sea wreaked havoc in many parts of the country, including 50 miles north of the capital Wellington in Waikana, where two hurricanes swept through roofs, twisted trees and caused massive flooding. Auckland has also been hit by heavy rain, and the city’s harbor bridge has had to be closed from time to time due to strong winds of up to 100 km/h.
