Are some strikes not detected?
#1
The reason I ask is that this evening there was a near direct strike at my house - simultaneous flash and bang.  Many electronic devices blow and a 15 amp breaker tripped in main panel.

But the map only shows 2 strikes near Jeannette PA and they were over 1 km away.  That would be 2-3 second delay between flash and bang.

That simply is not possible.  There was a strike that was virtually on my house.


Next door neighbor ran out of their house, they saw the flash and it came from the direction of my house.

Could that strike have been missed?

That dot you see on the map, is not the exact location, but a deviated approximation due to various factors.

One of the dots you refer to has a deviation of 4.4Km

Thanks, that would definitely explain it. All I can say is WOW if you ever have a strike that is "right on top of you."

So far the "fried": 55" TV, Ceiling Fan, Garage Door Opener, KVM Switch, Magic Jack. Have to get a TV replacement just to check the remaining electronic devices that were plugged in. (Have the 55 opened up and power supply board out trying to trouble shoot - trying to delay buying new set until ATSC 3.0 tuners are common place in low to mid level sets.)

Thanks
Tom
