Using Lightning to Predict Severe Storms

An alternative to costly radar-based weather services could soon be operational in developing nations, to help them detect severe storms more cheaply and quickly.

Next year, Earth Networks — one of the companies at the forefront of the technology — will conduct further trials in Haiti.
