    Why are there so many lightning strikes in Tampa area during a thunder storm? I’m told it’s the most in North America.

    It’s not necessarily Tampa, but Florida, because of the frequent sea-breeze that brings in storms.  There is debate on if Tampa is truly the lightning capital, but my guess is in reality, each year the city would change, but in general Florida gets the most strikes!
