    Re: discharge

    I think that's true. In my area, sometime there are reports of thunder deads and only from the countryside.
    Probably because in the city, all high objects are protected by lightning rods so people in the street are safe, people are too small compared to buildings and the like. There are not many large pieces of land in the city, but in the countryside there are a lot. If you are standing in the field and the charged cloud above, you are unprotected.
