Two storms in 2020 set two new records for lightning, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) announced today (Feb. 1).

One record was for longest single bolt, a record captured by a flash of lightning that stretched for about 477 miles (168 kilometers) from Texas to Mississippi during a storm on April 29, 2020.

That's about the same distance between New York City and Columbus, Ohio.

The second record was for longest-duration bolt, which went to a flash that lit up the sky for an impressive 17.1 seconds during a storm on June 18, 2020, over Uruguay and northern Argentina.
