In the U.S. state of Oregon frequent occurrence of lightning

May 17, 2013. TV KGW Meteorologist Rod Hill shared with the readers of his column on the Web site of the channel information that lightning strikes, lock-in the state of Oregon, for the period from 1990 to 2012 increased.

In 1990, the average number of lightning strikes in Oregon was 29,000. Since then, the rate has been steadily growing. Peak values — 70,000 Lightning — were recorded in 2003-2004. In 2012, the state was noted about 48,000 bits.
