Recent from RT:
NOTE: Lightning shown in the footage has occurred on the same day and in the same area as that where the reindeer were killed. It is however impossible to tell whether it was this exact lightening which killed the reindeer.
If the chances of getting struck by lightning are slim, the chances of 323 reindeer getting struck by lightning must be miniscule, but that’s exactly what seems to have happened on a mountain plateau in Norway.

In This Story: Lightning
Lightning is a giant spark of electricity in the atmosphere between clouds, the air, or the ground. Lightning can occur between opposite charges within the thunderstorm cloud (intra-cloud lightning) or between opposite charges in the cloud and on the ground (cloud-to-ground lightning).
