Florida sees more lightning strikes than any other state, according to data collected by NASA. We have fewer lightning-induced wildfires than out west, however, because the vegetation doesn’t dry out the way it does in the Great Plains and the more arid western states. Nonetheless, our climate produces a lot of lightning strikes in South Florida.
