Thunder storm season takes place through late spring into the summer months, finishing up with September. When lightening storms kill more people a year that tornadoes, it’s safe to take precaution.  The sudden change in air temperature is what causes the booming storms. Thunder is the noise of lightening cracking in the air. Lightening is the dangerous part of the storm so use the warning thunder gives to take cover.

I found information on thunderstorms by doing a search on weather.com. More links came from that page so that lead me to the other websites above.

Dear ostart,

I am fascinated by your post, "Thunder Storms" because I feel the exact same way! A comment you made that I enjoyed was "the sudden change in air temperature is what causes the booming storms" because not a lot of people know what causes the life threatening storms. I also enjoyed "lightening is the dangerous part of the storm so use the warning thunder gives to take cover" because lightening can be even worse then tornadoes or other storms. Thank you for writing this i look forward to seeing what you write next.
